Nahalal

NAHALAL

first moshav, founded in the jezreel valley in 1920.

Nahalal was a unique form of agricultural settlement in Palestine; called a moshav, it was based on cooperatively owned land, individual family farms, and homesteads with family laborbut mutual aid and a cooperative framework for purchasing and marketing. The majority of Nahalal's founders had been members of a kibbutz (an agricultural collective), who disagreed with the arrangements made for family life, child care, and education. They wished to preserve the integrity of the nuclear family within a cooperative community. The parents of Israeli soldier and statesman Moshe Dayanwho were among the founders of the first kibbutz, Deganiaalso helped establish Nahalal.
