Demolished summer of 2005
Secular communal settlement. Settlement movement: National Workers. Established in 1984. Kadim was located in northern Samaria, Road #60, at the Jezreel-Ganim junctions.
Kadim was located in northern Samaria, east of Jenin and near the settlement of Ganim. The area consists of low, forested hills, climate is cool and dry.
The origin of the settlement’s name is symbolic. It is reminiscent of the Arab village of Beit Kad, in the valley north of the settlement. A Nachal outpost on the site was turned into a civilian town in 1983 by a nucleus of families who had previously temporarily settled in Sanur, for the purpose of establishing a communal secular settlement to join the bloc of settlements in northern Samaria, close to the Gilboa mountain range. The town was located inside of a large pine forest, in such a way that construction would fit into the forest surroundings with a minimum of destruction.
