The Kosher Kibbutz

When money threatens to affect ideology

Movie Clip Embed Code

Documentary Israeli Society Religion

Kibbutz Beit-Alfa, Israel's first Hashomer Hatzair, the socialist-Zionist secular movement, kibbutz, is dealing with a conflict that is shaking its value system to its very core. Economic hardship is forcing the kibbutz residents to reach a difficult decision: Should the dining room become Kosher? Yet this struggle is but small in comparison to the collapse of the Kibbutz's socialist ideals and the demise of socialism elsewhere.

An entertaining and fascinating documentary that moves alternately from sweet to bitter and from bitter to sweet.
