Ein Gev is a kibbutz located on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. It falls under the jurisdiction of Emek HaYarden Regional Council., the population of Ein Gev was 521.The kibbutz lies near the ruins of the Greco-Roman settlement of Hippos.HistoryKibbutz Ein Gev came into being on 6 July 1937 during the 1936–1939 Arab revolt in Palestine as a tower and stockade settlement, a common debut for many kibbutzim during that era, and quickly established itself as a viable community. The original settlers were immigrants from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Austria, and the Baltic countries. Using intensive cultivation methods, they developed banana plantations. They also fished the nearby Lake Kinneret. In 1947, Ein Gev had a population of 450.Situated along a border shared with Syria, Ein Gev was shelled during the Battles of the Kinarot Valley and in other engagements during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. These dangers were only eliminated when Israel occupied the neighboring Golan Heights in the 1967 Six-Day War.EconomyThe kibbutz operates a holiday resort and a fish restaurant. Agricultural branches include bananas, dairy farming and ostrich breeding. The kibbutz built a 2,500-seat concert hall to accommodate the Ein Gev Music Festival, held annually during Passover.
