Lahav

4.1
Lahav is a kibbutz in southern Israel. Located around 20 km north of Beersheba and covering 33,000 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bnei Shimon Regional Council. In it had a population of.HistoryThe kibbutz was established in 1952 and was initially named Tziklag after the Biblical city of Ziklag, which was thought to have been located nearby. Originally the founders had been unsure whether to settle in the Negev or Galilee, but accepted a government decision that settling on Tel Halif in the Negev was more important. After a few years, the kibbutz was renamed Lahav in honour of the Nahal group which established it.EconomyThe economy of Kibbutz Lahav is based on agriculture and two industrial ventures: a plant for plastic containers owned and operated jointly with the neighboring kibbutz, Dvir, and a meat processing plant.In 1963, Lahav established the Institute for Animal Research with guidance from leading scientists from the Hebrew University's Faculty of Agriculture, which is the only research facility in Israel specializing in raising pigs. According to a 1963 law, pigs can be legally raised in kibbutzim only for research purposes, but meat from surplus animals may be sold. While all other kibbutzim abandoned pig farming to comply with the 1963 law, Lahav transferred its pig farm to its new organization, the Institute for Animal Research, which continues to supply Lahav's meat processing factory with surplus pigs. Lahav's pork and other meat products are nationally marketed in non-kosher food stores all over Israel, and the Lahav brand is a major competitor to non-kosher meat products of Mizra. However, the production of pig meat has raised criticism, as Israel is a Jewish state.
