About
Kibbutz Yiron

Kibbutz Yiron is located on a basalt plateau at 700 meters above sea level, on the Lebanese border. Yiron’s geographic location provides a comfortable climate during most months of the year, and a moderately cold winter, occasionally with some snow.

The kibbutz was founded after the war of independence, on the 20th of May 1948, as part of a chain of settlements along the border with Lebanon. Its founding members came from movements such as the Scouts, the Palmach’s “Yiftach” regiment and the “Freedom Pioneer” (“Dror Ha-Chalutz”) movement from Egypt. Over the years the founding members were joined by “Nachal” groups from the Israeli army, members of various youth movements, sons and daughters of other kibbutzim, and families from Israel and abroad.

Yiron’s population counts some 400 members, youth, residents and children. Kibbutz Yiron leads a collective lifestyle with an emphasis on sharing, equality and mutual responsibility. Yiron belongs to the “Me-uchad” kibbutz movement, and municipally to the Upper Galilee Regional Council. The kibbutz is at an approx. 30 minutes drive from towns and places such as Tzfat, Karmiel, Ma’alot, Tefen, Kiriat Shmona, the Tel-Chai Community College, Hatzor and Rosh-Pina.

Yiron’s economic strength stems from a variety of quality enterprises based on industry, agriculture and tourism. In addition, kibbutz members and residents are employed in a large variety of professions outside the kibbutz.
