Kibbutzim & Moshavim: Kfar HaNassi

Kfar HaNassi

Kfar HaNassi is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located 35 km north of the Sea of Galilee, and 6 km east of Rosh Pinna (near the hilly section of Jordan River), it falls under the jurisdiction of Upper Galilee Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 835.

The kibbutz was founded in 1948 by a group of British Jewish immigrants, members of the Habonim movement. Named Kibbutz HaBonim at first, the name was later changed to Kfar HaNassi, after Chaim Weizmann, the first President of Israel.

In 2007, Kfar HaNassi had 300 members, many kibbutz-born children, and a large group of residents who live on the premises.
