Nahsholim is a kibbutz and beach resort in northern Israel. Located near Zikhron Ya'akov, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In it had a population of.HistoryThe kibbutz was established in June 1948 by a group of idealistic Zionists who settled in the Arab village of al-Tantura, the residents of which having been expelled by Jewish forces only a few weeks earlier. The earliest residents were Palmach members, but were soon joined by Holocaust survivors from Poland. In 1949, the residents wrote: e settled in Tantura and did not have to work much in order to start, only to use what existed here already…. The beginning was the day when our group "Nahsholim” came and settled on the lands of the abandoned village Tantura and in its houses. The village was deserted. The property was abundant, and it was the time of the year to gather the crops. And these crops—listen, I shall not exaggerate if I say that we were somewhat dazed—the soil was fertile, the conditions comfortable, the sea and the beach incomparable, and overall limitless possibilities. We saw our dream coming true... The spacious former home of the muktar of Tantura served as the dining room. Other houses served as residences or as cowsheds, chicken coops or stables, workshops and sheds. Over the next decade, most the houses of Tantura were destroyed and new buildings constructed on the northern side. The residents had wished to establish the kibbutz as a fishing village on El Burj, the site of ancient Dor, but gave up after a long fight with the Israeli Department of Antiquities.
