This chapter reviews the book Meshek beit haikar: hameshek hame’urav bamaḥshevet hatziyonit (Mixed Farm and Smallholding in Zionist Settlement Thought) (2016), by Hezi Amiur. Mixed Farm and Smallholding in Zionist Settlement Thought focuses on the history and development of what appears to be the most important of the Zionist farmstead models: the mixed farm. Designated mainly for smallholders, the mixed farm formed the basis for the cooperative agricultural Zionist settlement known as the moshav, which gradually became the major type of agricultural settlement in Israel. The book explores the national, social, and cultural background of the Zionist settlement venture and looks at three leading figures in the agricultural settlement enterprise: Akiva Ettinger, Isaac Wilkansky, and Eliezer Yoffe. It also shows how hundreds of cooperative settlements and thousands of individual farm units emerged in Israel during the early 1950s, allowing the state to absorb a multitude of new immigrants.

Keywords:   mixed farm, Hezi Amiur, moshav, Israel, Zionist settlement, Akiva Ettinger, Isaac Wilkansky, Eliezer Yoffe
