HaOgen (Hebrew: העוגן, הָעֹגֶן‬, lit. anchor) is a kibbutz in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain, it falls under the jurisdiction of Emek Hefer Regional Council and is affiliated with Hashomer Hatzair. In 2017 it had a population of 898.[1]


The community was established on 22 April 1939 by immigrants from Czechoslovakia. After spending eight years in a camp near Kfar Saba, they founded the kibbutz on 28 August 1947,[2] on land that had traditionally belonged to Wadi Qabbani.[3] The Jewish National Fund provided 700 dunams of land for the kibbutz.[4][5]
