Givat Haim (Meuhad) (Hebrew: גבעת חיים (מאוחד)‎, lit. Haim Hill (United)) is a kibbutz near Hadera in Israel. It falls under the jurisdiction Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 990.[1]

History[edit]

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