Nahalal, a moshav (communal agriculture settlement) in Israel's Jezreel Valley was the first moshav established in Israel. It derives its name from a biblical town in the of the land of the Tribe of Zebulun (of the twelve tribes of Israel).

[edit] History

Nahalal's founders immigrated to Palestine from Eastern Europe in what is known as the second immigration and third immigration between the years 1904-1914 (end of the Ottoman rule). After working in farming communities for approximately 10 years, the founders wished to establish a communal farming community similar to a kibbutz, but keep their individual family structure (kibbutzim had communal dining and children slept in separate housing). The Nahalal pioneers first came to its location September 11, 1921.
