about galed

Gal'ed  is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located in the Plain of Manasseh with an area of 14,500 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Megiddo Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 405.


The village was established in 1945 by a gar'in of German HaBonim members which had formed in 1938. Because the land on which the Kibbutz lies was bought with money Yitzhak Ochberg, a South African philanthropist, had given, the Keren HaYesod wanted the kibbutz named Even Yitzhak (Hebrew: אֶבֶן יִצְחָק‎‎, lit.

 Stone of Yitzhak), but eventually the Kibbutz had its way: the kibbutz is named Gal'ed in memory of the HaBonim members killed in World War II – established on the tract of land "Even Yitzhak." Amongst the founders were the couple Giora and Senetta Yoseftal, both of whom were later members of the Knesset, with Giora serving in several ministerial portfolios.
