Francisco hippie musician commune led by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach OBM made in 1976 communal aliyah, got land and building materials and created from scratch in the middle of the Ben Shewmen forest the beautiful village I still live in.
After a countrywide financial crisis we decided to privatize and (so we were told, fairly divide assets and liabilities; it turned out to be a ruse by an inner core of members who shared with the rest of us only the liabilities but only among themselves all the assets, driving the rest into poverty, hunger, prime suicide candidacy.
They had the money to hire lawyers and drag others into court to have their way in view of potential real estate speculation; those who opposed them in the name of justice found themselves bullied into submission with the corrupt complicity of public officials and the financial backing of tycoons in the wings.
