KIBBITZING

In response to a parenthetical remark in Lisa Katzman’s review of Red Zion [‘In Memory of Myself’ [January 9–15]: She writes that the Soviet program to settle Jews in agricultural communes in the Crimea in the ’20s served as a model for the Israeli kibbutz. But that is untrue and absurd. The Israeli kibbutz started with D’gania, on or about 1913, which even precedes the Russian Revolution of 1917. The Russian communes certainly did not serve as a model for the kibbutz.
