Givat Haim (Ihud)

Givat Haim (Ihud) (Hebrew: גבעת חיים (איחוד)‎, lit. Haim Hill (United)) is a kibbutz near Hadera in Israel. It falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council.

History

It was formed in 1952 by an ideological split in kibbutz Givat Haim (founded 1932), with Mapam-supporting members forming Givat Haim (Meuhad) which joined the HaKibbutz HaMeuhad movement, and Mapai-supporting members breaking away to create Givat Haim (Ihud), which joined the Mapai-affiliated Ihud HaKvutzot veHaKibbutzim. Today both kibbutzim belong to the Kibbutz Movement.

Economy

As well as agriculture, the kibbutz is home to Prigat, a major soft drink company in Israel.
