Ramot HaShavim (Hebrew: רָמוֹת הַשָּׁבִים, lit. Heights of the Returnees) is a Jewish village in central Israel founded by German Jewish immigrants in 1933.[2] Located between Hod HaSharon and Ra'anana and covering around 2,300 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Drom HaSharon Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 1,730.[1]

History[edit]

The village was established as a moshav in 1933 by German immigrants of the Fifth Aliyah. In 1951 it became a local council, but as part of local government reforms in 2003 reverted to village status under the jurisdiction of a regional council.
