Kibbutz Evron is situated in the Western Galilee region in   northern Israel, close to Acco (Acre) and Nahariya on the Mediterranean Sea.

Evron was founded in 1937 by a group of young pioneers who were members of Zionist youth movements in Europe and whose ideology was to return to Zion, the Biblical homeland of the Jews, and rebuild it as a new Jewish state after 2000 years of exile.  Their dream was to establish a communal agricultural settlement - a kibbutz - where they could till the land with their own hands and subsist independently.  These original settlers were joined by refugees from the Holocaust in Europe, who found in the kibbutz a peaceful place to rebuild their shattered lives.

From a small group of about 90 pioneers in the 1930's, Evron has grown into a community of about 750 residents.  Today, Evron is a well-developed economic system based on agriculture (avocado and litchi groves), a turkey farm, a factory "Bermad", a regional waste disposal facility, a recreational facility that includes a heated swimming pool, a workout gym and exercise classes, and recreational attractions.

The history of the land
Evron is situated on land that was inhabited 500,000 years ago, as can be attested to by the numerous flint instruments and animal remains found in archeological digs in Evron's fields.  Building stones, remains of an olive oil production area and a beautifully preserved mosaic floor of a Christian church testify to the existence of a flourishing community here in the Byzantine era (5th to 7th centuries A.D.).  Nearby, an impressive aquaduct built by the Turks in the 7th century, perhaps on the foundations of an earlier Roman aquaduct, was in use until the early 1950's, carrying water from the Cabri springs to the north of Evron to the city of Acre to the south of Evron

What is a kibbutz?
A kibbutz is a group of people that bases its existence on the principles of equality, the collective ownership of production and consumption resources, democracy and the mutual responsibility of its members.   Evron's collective assets include land, the factory, machines, houses, and public buildings such as the kibbutz' communal dining room facility where breakfast and lunch are served to Evron's residents during the work day.  The members work, collectively sell their produce, and divide the revenue equally among themselves while setting aside part of the income to invest in production facilities.  The kibbutz society is dynamic.  It constantly s its economy and its practices in order to keep up with new trends in the modern world, while endeavoring to preserve the original principles of democracy, equality and collective responsibility.

 

Education
Part of Evron's fundamental ideology is attending to the needs of its members in the best possible way.  While the parents are at work, children from the age of 3 months to 6 years are taken care of by trained nannies and kindergarten teachers.  Children from age 7 to 12 learn in a nearby regional elementary school and from age 13 to 18, they learn in the regional high school located in Evron itself, together with children from 5 other kibbutzim.  After graduating from high school, many of them go on to university

Health and welfare
Evron has a health clinic, a dental clinic, and a nursing home which serve the residents.  One of the most unique things about kibbutz life is that its members are not forced to retire when they reach retirement age.  They can continue working and to be active and productive members of the community.  Members who choose to retire enjoy the national social security benefits as well as benefits from a pension fund set up by the kibbutz for the members.
