Givat Haim (Ihud) (Hebrew: גבעת חיים (איחוד)‎, lit. the hill of life [Khaim's Hill] (Union)) is a kibbutz near Hadera in Israel. It is located within the jurisdiction of the Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 1,088.[1]

History[edit]

It was formed in 1952 by an ideological split in kibbutz Givat Haim (founded 1932), with Mapam-supporting members forming Givat Haim (Meuhad) which joined the HaKibbutz HaMeuhad movement, and Mapai-supporting members breaking away to create Givat Haim (Ihud), which joined the Mapai-affiliated Ihud HaKvutzot veHaKibbutzim. Today both kibbutzim belong to the Kibbutz Movement.

Economy[edit]

As well as agriculture, the kibbutz is home to Prigat, a major soft drink company in Israel.
