Hulata (Hebrew: חוּלָתָה) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located in the Hula Valley, it falls under the jurisdiction of Upper Galilee Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 669.[1]

History[edit]

The kibbutz was established in 1937 as a fishing village by a gar'in of HaMahanot HaOlim youth group members. It was named for its location in the Hula Valley. After the draining of the Hula swamps, the residents began working in agriculture.[2]

The documentary film Kibbutz traces the stages of grieving and disillusionment that followed Hulata's economic collapse and privatization.[3]
