British-born Israeli journalist Daniel Gavron has worked for Israel Radio, The Jerusalem Post, and as managing editor of the Palestine-Israel Journal.

Among his best known work is Peace pays: Palestinians, Israelis, and the regional economy. He also wrote The Kibbutz: Awakening from Utopia. The Israeli kibbutz movement was arguably the longest lasting and most comprehensive experiment in socialism to date. Although many well-established kibbutzim have in recent years strayed from their egalitarian values, some of the young members have remained faithful to the communal ideal and have created urban communes all over the country. Communes are a world-wide phenomenon but this particular experience means Israel offers valuable insights to share with other societies, including our own.

Daniel Gavron will review the history of the kibbutz and other cooperative structures, introducing a participatory discussion.

This event is free but registration is required. To RSVP please email jlmagm2013@gmail.com
