Kfar HaNagid (Hebrew: כְּפַר הַנָּגִיד‎, lit. Village of the Prince), is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the coastal plain around 20 km south of Tel Aviv and north of Yavne, it falls under the jurisdiction of Gan Raveh Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,223.[1]

History[edit]

The moshav was established in 1949 by immigrants from Bulgaria, and it was named after Samuel HaNagid.[2] According to Benny Morris, the moshav is founded near the land of the depopulated Palestinian village of al-Qubayba,[3] however, Walid Khalidi writes that it is only near the al-Qubayba site and that Kfar HaNagid is located on the land which belonged to Yibna.[4]
