In 1935 a group of men, women, and children, many of whom had left their homes in Europe, followed him into the middle of the Negev Desert, to the site of an ancient well dug deep into the parched Palestinian land. In that unlikely place, too close to the Arabs for comfort, they started a kibbutz. It was not an easy exercise; it yielded too many dead. But where Abraham led they followed: to Tel Aviv, to another kibbutz along the Sea of Galilee, on the attack across the border into Syria.
