View of Kababir

Kababir (Arabic: كبابير‎; Hebrew: כבאביר‎) is a mixed neighbourhood of Jews and Ahmadi Muslim Arabs in Haifa, Israel.[1]


The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was founded in the 19th century, originating in India and settled in Kababir. Most of the families who were displaced to Kababir are originally from the village of Ni'lin near Jerusalem. One of the biggest and most well known family is the Odeh's family.[citation needed]

In the beginning, the neighbourhood was managed as a commune in which every working male contributed a fee to a mutual account. Some of the men joined the Turkish army, while some worked in the oil refinery in the city of Haifa. Others worked building the Port of Haifa.
