The State

What exactly is a kibbutz

Israeli culture is an exquisite blend of ancient and modern and a country that people from West and East have come to call home. Heavily influenced by Jewish law and custom, Israeli culture has borrowed not only from its rich religious roots, but also from the food, music, and art of the people who have emigrated both from Europe (Ashkenazic Jews) and from North Africa and the Middle East (Sephardic Jews).
