Abstract

This paper discusses the alternation of One-Ness (massification) and Me-Ness (aggregation) used by Israeli society as an unconscious defense mechanism in response to the war and terror, which have beset it since before the establishment of the state. In particular, it focuses on the unconscious meanings of this ongoing situation for the Israeli society that uses volunteers to help its many victims of war and terror and on the alternation of One-Ness and Me-Ness reflected in the supervision groups that the authors conduct for these volunteers.
