What People are Saying About This
Victor Kleerekoper, Australian Jewish News 24th February 2000. Life on a kibbutz these days is vastly different from what it was in the 1950s and 1960s. For idealists who lived through those days, they were exciting times, full of fun and serious work in building the then fledgling Jewish state. . . . Those heady days of kibbutz life are relived in a new book, Collectively Yours by David Meron... a 264 page paperback full of personal stories and anecdotes about the kibbutz and the people. . . .
Doreen Wachman, Jewish Telegraph England, 27th January 2000 This is a delightful collection of accounts of kibbutz life in the ideological hey-days of the 1950' and 60s, before materialism eroded the original vision. The author is David Merron who gave up his medical studies to settle on kibbutz . . . He recounts the ideological debates which repeatedly dogged kibbutz meetings: accepting gifts from relatives, whether Israel should be aligned in the Cold war . . . and the first encounters with Palestinians from Gaza after the Six-Day War when they suddenly found we could meet with people from across the border.
