Kovner returned to Kibbutz Ein Hahoresh when the War of Independence ended, which marked the beginning of almost four decades of channeling his energy into various civilian projects. He was a member of Mapam and Hashomer Hatzair, dealing with its leadership and members, and traveled widely outside Israel as an envoy of both the movement and, later, of the Diaspora Museum. Kovner perpetuated Jewish history and the history of the Holocaust in plans he devised for founding museums and other institutions, and integrated Jewish culture into the kibbutz's daily life. He wrote literary works and was deeply involved in Israeli society; he had a family and friends, and continued nonstop until he died, not yet 70.

Keywords:   Abba Kovner, Kibbutz Ein Hahoresh, Mapam, Hashomer Hatzair, Israel
