|Region||Sea of Galilee|
Kvutzat Kinneret (Hebrew: קְבוּצַת כִּנֶּרֶת) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located to the south-west of the Sea of Galilee near Tiberias, it falls under the jurisdiction of Emek HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 896.
The village was founded in 1908 as Havat Kinneret (Hebrew: חוות כנרת, lit. Kinneret Farm). Its name derives from the ancient Hebrew name of the Sea of Galilee and from a Biblical village located beside the Sea of Galilee further north in the tribe of Naphtali (Joshua 19:35). In 1913 it became a kibbutz. Beekeeping and the sale of honey were among the earliest economic branches.
To the east of the kibbutz is a historic cemetery where many pioneers and leaders of the Labour movement are buried, among them Berl Katznelson, Nachman Syrkin, Rachel Bluwstein, Ber Borochov and Avraham Hartsfeld.
