Gan Shmuel ( _he. גן שמואל), lit. "Shmuel's Garden") is a kibbutz in the Haifa District of Israel, east of Hadera. It is named for the Rabbi Shmuel Mohilever.

History

In 1895 the founders of the town of Hadera planted Gan Shmuel, a grove of etrogs. The lands of Gan Shmuel were transferred to the Jewish National Fund and a small group of pioneers took upon itself to tend to the orchards live in a multi-story house in 1913. The group was recognized as a kibbutz in 1921. The first stable group formed in 1923 and its members were considered the founders of Gan Shmuel.

ports

The kibbutz is host to the Hapoel Gan Shmuel Menashe basketball team, which previously played in the top division of Israeli basketball.
