Ephraim Ben-Eliezer, member of the Platte Clove Community in Elka Park, NY. Platte Clove Community is a branch of the Bruderhof Community movement. The Bruderhof started in 1920 in Germany, fled during Nazi Germany to England and then Paraguay. They relocated to the USA and Europe in the 1950’s, and currently live in full sharing community settlements of about 200-300 people similar to the early kibbutzim.
