Orchards of Sde Eliezer

Sde Eliezer (Hebrew: שְׂדֵה אֱלִיעֶזֶר) (lit. Eliezer's Field) is a moshav in the Hula Valley in northern Israel. It is affiliated with the Mevo'ot HaHermon Regional Council. In 2007, the population was 700.[1]

Sde Eliezer was founded in 1950 by residents of Yesod HaMa'ala and Kiryat Shmona. Immigrants from Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Poland and Romania also settled there. The moshav was named for Robert (Eliezer) Rothschild, grandson of Edmond de Rothschild, founder of the Palestine Jewish Colonization Association (PICA), which purchased the land from Arab landowners.[1]
