On which Kibbutz was Bernie Sanders a volunteer?


Bernie Sanders apparently volunteered on an Israeli Kibbutz (collective) for a few months some 50+ years ago. But no one can remember on which one, so now they are trying to use social media to find out. Caption read: "Remember him from the dining hall?"

In the picture, Bernie is wearing the famous kova tembel (dunce cap) that was popular in Kibbutzim way back when.

Another one of the tribe who has strayed from the course.

The kova tembel or fools hat was popular everywhere in Israel until the 1970s.

It was usually much larger and always covered the ears -- it was, after all, a hat for agricultural workers.

I was at two kibbutzim in 70-71.

At Sde Nehemia, a kidney infection nearly killed me.

It would be interesting to learn which movement the kibbutz at which Bernie Sanders volunteered was affiliated.

I hope that it wasn't Hashomair Hatzair.
