Hi there fox, My name is Roni, I live in Israel in a Kibbutz down south called Nir Yitzhak, with my two little kids and my dear wife. Away from the holy city of Jerusalem and the modern advanced city of Tel Aviv.
We live in a different and special lifestyle based on the values of Socialism and Communism.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” Originally it means that the member/family would pass their income to the community and get a limited low budget according to their basic needs. The Kibbutz movement was established in the beginning of the 20th century when all the members worked in the Kibbutz and for the Kibbutz if it’s in the field, crop, factory, cowshed, clinic, kitchen and a dining room.
In the modern days, the Kibbutz members make their own living as a household and developed profession and pay a generous portion to the community tax.
In the rural areas and in the periphery you make the best out of the wide lands and use field crops, factories and cowsheds. More initiatives and professions became possible and as technology progressed.
Nowadays, in the competitive run of modern life, it is nice to stop, slow down and lay back. Here, away from the stress and the pressure of the big cities, you can enjoy the countryside lifestyle.
