Kibbutz is a kind of communal settlement unique to Israel. About 287 Kibbutzim (plural of Kibbutz) exists today, making about 1.8% of the population of Israel, about 7% of the Israeli industry and more than 50% of the Israeli agriculture. Since 1967, kibbutzim also support (and benefits) a unique program for overseas volunteers. Those young and not so young people, have the opportunity to live for a few month in this very unique society and this very unique country. They work, travel and participate in kibbutz life, gaining an unforgettable experience.
