Wikipedia

  1. Moshav

    A moshav (Hebrew: מוֹשָׁב, plural מוֹשָׁבִים moshavim, lit. settlement, village) is a type of Israeli town or settlement, in particular a type of cooperative agricultural community of individual farms pioneered by the Labour Zionists between 1904 and 1914, during what is known as the second wave of aliyah. A resident or a member of a moshav can be called a "moshavnik" (מוֹשַׁבְנִיק‎). The moshavim are similar to kibbutzim with an emphasis on community labour. They were designed as part of the Zionist state-building programme following the green revolution Yishuv ("settlement") in the British Mandate of Palestine during the early 20th century, but in contrast to the collective farming kibbutzim, farms in a moshav tended to be individually owned but of fixed and equal size. Workers produced crops and other goods on their properties through individual or pooled labour with the profit and foodstuffs going to provide for themselves. Moshavim are governed by an elected council (Hebrew: ועד, va'ad, lit. committee). Community projects and facilities were financed by a special tax (Hebrew: מס ועד, mas va'ad, lit. committee tax). This tax was equal for all households of the community.

  1. moshav

    A moshav is a type of rural agricultural community in Israel, similar to a kibbutz but structured around cooperative farming rather than collective farming. Individuals or families in a moshav typically own their own homes and land, but community-wide services such as marketing, security, purchasing of supplies, and education are handled collectively by the community. Moshavim were originally established by Jewish immigrants and refugees in the early 20th century.

  1. Moshav

    Moshav is a type of Israeli town or settlement, in particular a type of cooperative agricultural community of individual farms pioneered by the Labour Zionists during the second wave of aliyah. A resident or a member of a moshav can be called a "moshavnik". The moshavim are similar to kibbutzim with an emphasis on community labor. They were designed as part of the Zionist state-building program following the Yishuv in the British Mandate of Palestine during the early 20th century, but contrary to the collective kibbutzim, farms in a moshav tended to be individually owned but of fixed and equal size. Workers produced crops and goods on their properties through individual and/or pooled labour and resources and used profit and foodstuffs to provide for themselves. Moshavim are governed by an elected council. Community projects and facilities were financed by a special tax. This tax was equal for all households of the community, thus creating a system where good farmers were better off than bad ones, unlike in the communal kibbutzim where all members enjoyed the same living standard. Many moshavim still exist today.
