Intensifying of the cooperation with kibbutz Kfar Masaryk

One of the most important centers of the Czech community in northern Israel is the kibbutz Kfar Masaryk, founded by Czechoslovak and Lithuanian immigrants in the 30s. It is a very developed kibbutz with modern agriculture and innovative enterprises. Its population grows cotton, tomatoes, avocado and breed cattle, poultry and carp. In its factories paper and cardboard boxes are manufactured and kibbutz members are also engaged in the production and research of up-to-date electronic devices.

Ambassador Ivo Schwarz met on 16 March 2015 with representatives of the kibbutz, who introduced him to their latest production. The main point of his program was the visit to the Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk Memorial, which serves as a study of documents associated with TGM and Czechoslovakia. Ambassador Ivo Schwarz discussed the possibilities of support and further cooperation with kibbutz members and other people from the neighborhood connected with former Czechoslovakia and the participation of the kibbutz representatives in commemorative events having been realized in 2015 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations with the State of Israel.
