Reineh, or Reine (Arabic: الرينة‎; Hebrew: רֵינָה) is an Arab village in the Galilee,[1] located between Nazareth and Qana of Galilee. The village attained Local council status in 1968. As of 2004, Reineh is home to 15,300 residents, of which 80% are Muslim, 19.3% are Christian, according to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics.

History[edit]

Until 1927 the village was located north of the Nazareth highway, but a destructive earthquake led its inhabitants to resettle south of the road in its present location.[citation needed]
