This study examines the modern striving of the Jewish people in the new State of Israel. It was my privilege to be accepted for a work-study program (Ulpan) at Kibbutz Merchavia for the time period between July 1978-November 1978. This report is the result of both academic research of the history and ideology of the kibbutz movement in Modern Israel, and the experiential observations I obtained during my visit at Merchavia. With this information, I have briefly outlined the history of the kibbutz movement, and its relationship to the Zionist Movement of the early 20th century. From there, I have discussed the theoretical structure and ideology of the kibbutz system and finally, recorded my observations of how Kibbutz Merchavia compares with the 'model' kibputz.
