Ravid (Hebrew: רָבִיד‬, lit. Necklace) is a small kibbutz in northern Israel. Located to the west of the Sea of Galilee, it falls under the jurisdiction of Emek HaYarden Regional Council. In 2016 it had a population of 90.[1]

History[edit]

Ravid was established in 1981 by members of the Takam movement as part of the Galilee lookouts programme, including 10 families who had moved from cities.[2] The site was land that had belonged to the depopulated Palestinian village of al-Mansura until the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, southeast of the village site.[3]

However, after a social crisis, the kibbutz was dismanted.[2] It was successfully re-established in 1994 by former members of HaNoar HaOved VeHaLomed, and is now part of the Dror-Israel movement.[2]
