Israeli kibbutz cooperatives continue to thrive

During a recent trip, Mary discovered that an old way of life is still thriving along the Mediterranean Sea.

A "kibbutz," Hebrew for gathering or clustering, is a communal collective which is typically based on agriculture. "Kibbutzniks" began forming the communities in Israel as early as the 1920's, and the communities still thrive today.

Communal living is alive and well in Isreal's kibbutz, as Mary Clark describes.
