The Kibbutz Goes Suburban
Shiloh writes that the traditional kibbutz is changing:
"First to disappear were the collective living arrangements for children. Then the collective dining room began to charge for meals. Among the last things to go was the equal pay for all. But the biggest physical change for the collective farms are the new neighborhoods for outsiders going up on their outskirts."
Shiloh talks with architect Yuval Yaski, who says the suburbanization of the kibbutz is a mistake because the model only works as a combination of rural and urban lifestyles.
