Demolished summer of 2005
Secular communal settlement.
Settlement movement: National Workers.
The community’s foundations were laid in 1983.
The community was located on the Jezreel-Ganim junction highway. Topography of the region consists of forested hills of pine groves and a Mediterranean-type grove. Dry, moderate climate.
The source of the community’s name, as Jenin’s name – is “Ein Ganim”, part of the inheritance of the tribe of Issaschar. The region, it is thought, is the birthplace of Beni ben-Ginat – Imri’s competitor for the monarchy in Israel.
The settlement was founded in 1983 by a nucleus of families from northern Israel for the purpose of building a string of settlements in northeastern Samaria and to put State lands to good use. The community faces north to the Rahav valley, a southeastern extension of the Jezreel valley. South of the community is a nature preserve and antiquities from the Um Tut village.
