ABOUT HAZOR HAGLILIT

                                                

Hazor HaGlilit is a town in northern Israel near Rosh Pinna and Safed. It is named after the biblical site of Tel Hazor. It was established as a development town in the 1950s and is home to people from many different backgrounds, though in the early years, residents were mainly of Moroccan descent. In 2016 it had a population of around 9,000.

Recently the council, together with the national government, has set a goal of doubling the number of residents within a five year period. This rapid growth offers many opportunities but also challenges, one of which is how to harmonize newcomers with the different established communities. Accordingly, the council is developing a strategic plan specifically related to community cohesion.
