Kerem Shalom

Kerem Shalom (Hebrew: כרם שלום, German: Vineyard of Peace) is a kibbutz in the Eshkol Regional Council and a named for this border crossing near the Gaza Strip and Egypt.

The kibbutz was founded in 1966. The name of the kibbutz includes the word shalom (which inter alia means peace ), since the members believed that the location would play a role in the peace of the Arab- Israeli conflict. The kibbutz was abandoned in 1996, but was reestablished in 2001. The kibbutz currently consists of 60 residents who earn their living by farming and poultry farming.
