The sign in the entrance to the kibbutz
|Founded by||Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian Jews|
Mishmarot (Hebrew: מִשְׁמָרוֹת) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located adjacent to the city of Pardes Hanna-Karkur, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 258. It is located about 50 m above sea level, and is close to the villages Ein Shemer and Kfar Glickson.
The village was founded in October 1933, during Sukkot, by immigrants from Russia, Lithuania and Latvia, on JNF land, under the auspices of Keren HaYesod. Its name comes from the farm in the Crimea in which the founders trained, called Mishmar (lit. guard shifts). Notable former residents include Shalom Hanoch and Meir Ariel.
