Kibbutz volunteering began in the 1960s as the idealistic and rebellious youth generation was charmed by the old communist ideology brought to life in the Israeli kibbutz. The 1967 Six-Day War attracted a wave of support for Israel that the kibbutz movement saw as a miracle. When travel agencies started selling “kibbutz volunteering” packages, volunteering became a profitable business, and the kibbutz found itself facing unfamiliar phenomena: drugs, alcohol, and marriage with non-Jewish volunteers. During the 1980s, unemployment across Europe secured a steady stream of volunteers, but Israel had changed. The war in Lebanon and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict forced volunteers to face a new question: Does supporting the kibbutz mean supporting the state of Israel?
