Lehavot Haviva (Hebrew: לְהֲבוֹת חֲבִיבָה‬, lit. Haviva's Flames) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located in the eastern Sharon plain near the Green Line, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 1,007.[1]


The village was established in 1949 by Hashomer Hatzair who had immigrated from Czechoslovakia, and was named after Haviva Reik. In 1951 it moved three kilometres east to its present location (land which had previously belonged to the depopulated Palestinian village of al-Jalama[2]), with Sde Yitzhak founded on the former site the following year.
