The Kinneret Courtyard
The Kinneret Courtyard

The Kinneret Courtyard (established in 1908) served as an agricultural and social laboratory during the period of the Second Aliya. It was here where the first buds of social experimentation developed, with ideas like the Kibbutz and the Moshav. Kinneret Courtyard was also a hothouse for burgeoning organizations, including the Hagana. Also the feminist revolution takes place in the Courtyard - the women’s training farm known as Chavat Ha’almot (the maidens’ farm) and the beginnings of the agricultural schools in Eretz Israel. It was only natural for the leaders of that period to live and workin the Kinneret Courtyard. They included A.D. Gordon, Berl Katzenelson, Ben Zion Yisraeli, Zalman Shazar, Yosef Bussel, Shmuel Dayan, Yitzhak Tabenkin, Levi Eshkol and Rachel, the poetess.
