Things to do: museums
Ginosar is a kibbutz on the western banks of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. Located north of Tiberias on Highway 90, it falls under the jurisdiction of Emek HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 472.HistoryRoman eraIn the First Century AD there was a flourishing town known by Greek and Latin speakers as Gennesaret, with the version "Ginosar" appearing in the New Testament. The modern kibbutz takes its name from this ancient town, though it is not certain it is located on precisely the same site.British MandateGinosar was founded on the eve of Purim in March 1937 by a group of young Socialist Zionists, on Palestine Jewish Colonization Association (PICA) land that had been leased to the settlement of Migdal.The reason given for "squatting" was that the leased area needed close protection during the "disturbances" (1936–1939 Arab revolt in PalestineMigdal]). The original was built as a tower and stockade settlement.The kibbutz was closely aligned with the Mapai party and was the home of Yigal Allon, commander of the "Syrian Department" of the Palmach, and later a senior minister in the Government of Israel.
