HaHotrim (Hebrew: הַחוֹתְרִים, lit. The Rowers) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located near Tirat Carmel, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In 2012 it had a population of 631.[1]


The beginnings of the kibbutz were in December 1941, with the formation of a work company near Kiryat Haim by immigrants from Czechoslovakia and Germany.[2] The kibbutz was established in 1952 on the land of a depopulated Arab village named Al-Tira in June 1948.[3][4]
