Kfar Pines (Hebrew: כְּפַר פִּינֶס‎, lit. Pines Village) is a religious moshav in northern Israel. Located to the north-east of Hadera, adjacent to Pardes Hanna-Karkur and Ein Iron, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 994.

History[edit]

The village was established in 1933 by Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe, and was named after the author Rabbi Yehiel Michal Pines. It hosts an ulpena, a religious girls high school, named "Ramat Karniel" (Karniel's height). It is the first ulpena in Israel and therefore it called "Em HaUlpenot" (mother of all ulpenas).
