Apples and Oranges, a new documentary, looks back with nostalgia at an era when young idealists from around the world flocked to Israel to participate in its great experiment of communal living. Volunteering became a profitable business, but led to unanticipated outcomes – drugs, alcohol, and marriage with non-Jewish volunteers. The war in Lebanon and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict forced the volunteers to face a new question – does supporting the Kibbutz mean supporting the state of Israel?
