Welcome to Kibbutz Yahel

A kibbutz that is a community

Yahel is a kibbutz in the southern Arava, home to a friendly community of about 80 families. Yahel people enjoy an excellent quality of life and communal solidarity in safe, comfortable and secure surroundings.

"Only here in Yahel we could buy a house with a teacher's salary"

Community amenities enjoyed by all residents include a dining room, synagogue and community center, and our own library, grocery store, basketball court, soccer pitch, tennis court, swimming pool, and medical clinic. 

In recent years Yahel has been a magnet for many young families wishing to join our community. The kibbutz offers more than one way to be integrated here; each family chooses what works best for them.
