Hararit, located on the crest of Mount Netofa in the Lower Galilee, was established in 1980 as part of a government-sponsored project initiated by Labour party member Nissim Zvili.It was part of a plan to bring more Jewish residents to the Galilee area. It was settled by 60 families dedicated to the principles of Transcendental Meditation (TM) but by the year 2000 the TM group was reported to be only half of its original population. In 2008, there were 95 families living in Hararit.
Archaeologists have discovered three large ancient water cisterns and the remains of agricultural terraces in the vicinity of Hararit. 
The economy is largely based on hitec, alternative medicine, tourism, with some of the residents operating bed and breakfast establishments.
