Kalanit (Hebrew: כַּלָּנִית‎) is a community settlement in northern Israel. Located between Tiberias and Karmiel, next to Maghar, it falls under the jurisdiction of Merom HaGalil Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 195.[1]

History[edit]

The village was established in 1982 as a moshav by the Hapoel HaMizrachi organization with the goal that it would be populated by the children of the families living in the area, and so with time the moshav became a community settlement.
