Entrance to Usha
|Founded||9 November 1937|
|Founded by||Polish immigrants|
Usha (Hebrew: אוּשָׁה) is a kibbutz in the western Galilee area of Israel. Located near the city of Kiryat Atta, it falls under the jurisdiction of Zevulun Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 462.
The kibbutz was founded on 9 November 1937 as a tower and stockade settlement by a Polish gar'in formed in 1930. Prior to the establishment of the kibbutz, they had organised themselves in several moshavot in the Sharon area, including Kfar Saba, Magdiel and Petah Tikva. The founders were members of the Hanoar Hatzioni youth group, and it was the first kibbutz established by the organisation. Its name was taken from the ancient Jewish city of Usha, which remained in the Arab village Hawsha that was located nearby.
