Muki Tsur has been a member of Kibbutz Ein Gev since 1956. He studied Jewish Philosophy and Kabbalah at the Hebrew University and researched early Zionist movements in Eretz Yisrael. He served as the secretary of the Kibbutz Movement for seven years. He was among the founders of Hamidrasha in Oranim as well as BINA, a secular yeshiva in Tel Aviv. Tsur continues to guide and teach in both organizations and in many others, working with groups of young people who seek to build a democratic Jewish culture that is based on Jewish sources and on socialist Zionism.
