Moshav HaBonim, 1950
|Founded by||HaBonim movement|
HaBonim (Hebrew: הַבּוֹנִים, Builders) is a moshav shitufi in northern Israel. Located 5 km south of Atlit and 3 km north of Kibbutz Nahsholim, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 259.
The moshav was founded in 1949 by the HaBonim movement on land which belonged to the depopulated Palestinian village of Kafr Lam. The first residents were from the United Kingdom and South Africa. It came to national prominence on 11 June 1985 due to the HaBonim disaster, in which a bus and train collided, killing 22 people, of which 19 were schoolchildren. A monument was erected at the train crossing.
