Show Summary Details


The pioneers of the Second and Third Aliyot were not just Zionists seeking to establish a Jewish polity; they were revolutionaries who wanted to create an entirely new and specifically Jewish society. As socialists, they took as their goal the creation of a commonwealth in which relations between people would be based on true equality, mutual assistance, and mutual respect. The economic forces that, so they believed, controlled the structure of human relations in a capitalist society would no longer determine the fate of men and women. This chapter discusses the following: the kibbutz community, the culture of the circle, the group in discourse and language, and Sabra friendship in war.
