Notes What is a Moshav (narrative only)

A MOSHAV is a co-operative settlement and differs from a KIBBUTZ in that each family own its own plot of land on a Moshav as opposed to the Kibbutz which is operated in communal style. At the time of this Vistas of Israel broadcast there were over 400 Moshavim in the Country. A conference was held at Moshav Fah Yoval (check spelling) to discern the needs of Moshavim, especially those along Israel's borders. Mr. Israel Gefin organized this conference of 60 attendees to address the Government as to the needs and concerns of the Moshavim. Representatives of the Moshavim are interviewed concerning, in particular, various security problems, building and home construction and general morale.
