Newest Kibblitz Won’t Pursue Agriculture

President Yitzhak Navon and his wife Ophira attend the inauguration this week of Kibbutz Kishor in western Galilee, a settlement unique in the history of Israel’s kibbutz movement.

Sponsored by Mapam’s Kibbutz Artzi, Kishor will be based exclusively on industry. Perched on a hilltop, it is believed to be the first kibbutz with no agricultural land to cultivate.
