rivate electricity pro-
duction in Israel? By
a kibbutz? The anoma-
ly is only too apparent. But
Kfar Hanassi, a northern kib-
butz settled originally by
Anglo-Saxon immigrants, is
about to build a hydro-electric
scheme for the installation
and operation of a tur-
bogenerator. The electricity
plant will be combined with
development of a wilderness
recreation park for excur-
sionists from other parts of
Israel and for tourists from
abroad.
Since its establishment in
1948, Kfar Hanassi has faced
and surmounted formidable
problems. When the first set-
tlers, mainly from British
Habonim, came to the hilly
site opposite the Syrian gun
emplacements, there were
great arguments whether to
stay or not, as there seemed
to be no basis for economic
development. However, grit
and determination and a will-
ingness to try the unusual
have made the kibbutz a suc-
cessful enterprise which has
both survived and prospered.
Kfar Hanassi is located just
south of the Galilee Panhan-
dle and 15 kilometers north of
the Sea of Galilee. Because of
its location, it is not con-
nected to the National Water
Carrier, nor directly to the
National Water Scheme. In-
stead, there is a local water
association that regulates
water supply, and settlements
make their own pumping ar-
rangements, which are over-
seen and must be approved by
the Israel Water Commission.
Water is raised to the kib-
butz homestead and to near-
by fields by an electrically
operated pumping system in-
stalled by Kfar Hanassi three
years ago. Now the kibbutz is
undertaking a new enterprise
— producing electricity by
harnessing a small part of the
Jordan River's flow.
The project will be located
alongside the ruins of a
Crusader castle called Met-
sad Ateret, at a section of the
Jordan Valley relatively un-
touched by man and destined
to become the North Jordan
Nature Reserve.
Although Kfar Hanassi has
received the go-ahead from
the Ministry of the Interior
and the Water Commissioner,
its considerations and ac-
tivities are not completely in-
dependent, and it will be col-
laborating in the venture
with other interested bodies
— the Jewish National Fund,
