Degania Alef, 'Mother of the Kibbutzim' is the first Kibbutz, established in 1910 on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and Jordan River. A fascinating social experiment in communal living, which has lasted more than a century. History, culture and heritage from pioneer days at the beginning of last century, continued by today's vibrant pioneers in modern Kibbutz living.

We visited this place with the help of a woman tour guide that grew up in this place. She was the epitomy of a forceful woman and I would surely duck behind her when the bombs came to call. Very nice and capable lady.

It's a typical kibbutz in a typical state of repair. No big deal. Why do you go? Because they make their chocolate confections with imported Belgian chocolate. Which is the best. I was in heaven!

The first kibbutz in Israel established in 1910. So much history. We got a great tour and learned a lot about life in a Kibbutz. General Moshe Dayan was the second baby to be born in this kibbutz.
