: Telephone switchboard
In the early 1960s, a switchboard was set up where members of the Kibutz worked on shifts from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Members who received calls from Israel or from abroad found their name on the billboard for ’dial back’ or received a ’brief summary’ in writing.
For outside calls, the line was moved to the next room and from there the call was conducted.
The "Givat Brenner Shalom" in the Yekke accent was the hallmark of the switchboard that moved to the "Osem" on the late 1980s.
