A BEAUTIFUL ARTICLE ABOUT URBAN KIBBUTZIM

An Urban Kibbutz in Jerusalem

by Shulamit Reinharz, the Jacob Potofsky Professor of Sociology at Brandeis University, where she founded the Women’s Studies Research Center and The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (
hbi@brandeis.edu).

Short excerpt:
"Recently, three members of Kibbutz Reshit received a national prize for their work. They were cited for providing education and social-community services with enthusiasm, creativity, persistence, and outstanding leadership. The prize rewarded ongoing, long-term activity that has enjoyed great success and is intended to benefit and, in particular, to empower a disenfranchised population."

This can happen in Anytown, Just About Anycountry.
