Lotan Center for Creative Ecology

Kibbutz Lotan is a young community situated in the Arava Desert in the south of Israel. They are far away from urban Israel in a quiet area, surrounded by beautiful landscapes.

Lotan was established in 1983 by graduates of the Reform Jewish youth movements from Israel and overseas. They came together to create a community based on a modern, liberal approach to Judaism that strives to fulfill values of equality between the sexes, equality in work, and genuine communication between people. They offer Green Apprenticeships which emphasize local food production, permaculture, ecological design, natural building, and more.
