“Haver”, “haverim” (plural) is a Hebrew term meaning “friend” and, in the context of the kibbutz, “member” or “comrade”.
Where does this term come from ?
We find this term frequently in the Talmud. It is used to designate rabbis not yet ordained but co-opted. By this word, a weight is given to fraternity induced around erudition and transmission.
When the word “Haver” is pronounced, hebraists hear its root: “H” “B” “R”, three letters that can be organized in various ways to also generate the words: “hibour” common name meaning “connection “; “Léhaber”, verb that means “to connect”.
The “haver” is the one who lives “connected” as much as he connects.
In kibbutz, members have always called themselves “haverim”.
The members of a classical or urban kibbutz are thus called “havere kibbutz”, the term “haverim”, placed in a nominal group, turning in plural into “havere”.
