Religious Pluralism in Israel   --------   Tolerance   --------  The Environment


Kibbutz Ketura, located in the midst of Israel’s Arava desert, was founded in the spirit of the Zionist and American values that its
pioneers brought with them: tolerance, equality, a desire for social justice and a commitment to Jewish traditions.

Now Kibbutz Ketura is the home of over 400 adults and children, and continues to renew its commitment to the vision it has
never abandoned.
