Kfar Vitkin

Kfar Vitkin (כפר ויתקין, lit. Vitkin Village) is a moshav in central Israel. Located near Netanya, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council and was the first Jewish settlement in the valley. In 2007 it had a population of 1,700.

The community was established in 1930 by a group of 20 people, and was initially based in an old stone house. The moshav was founded in 1933 when the founders moved into new buildings, and was named after Yosef Vitkin, an educator and leader of the Labour movement. The original house became known as "Beit HaRishonim" (House of the First). The moshav covers 150 private farms
