About.

Kibbutz Gezer is a kibbutz, or cooperative settlement, located in Central Israel between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Originally founded in 1945, the kibbutz disbanded in 1963 and was reestablished by a group of young Americans in 1973.

Gezer like many kibbutzim has changed and continues to change to fit the needs of the members and to adapt to surroundings and changes in Israeli society. While most members are economically independent, Gezer has several commonly owned businesses, including a dairy with 300 milking cows, farmland, olives, daycare and after school care (from infants to high school) , pub, second hand shop, library and grocery store. We also share certain services, including a dentist’s office, central office, internet service and mail, and hair cutting. There are also privately run businesses that operate on the kibbutz: an architect’s office, massage and healing, synagogue, carpentry, catering and more.
