• Karmiel is northern Israel’s youngest and fastest growing development town founded in 1964.

 

  • Originally founded by 90 families, Karmiel now has a population of approximately 50,000 of which 20,000 are immigrants from other countries.

 

  • It is located in Northern Israel, on the Acre-Safed road in the Beit HaKerem Valley, which divides upper and lower Galilee.

 

  • Karmiel translates from Hebrew into the ‘Vineyard of God’.

 

  • The design of the city is unique and modern, with a complete separation between the industrial and residential areas. There are wide sections of parks, gardens, and tree-lined streets. One of the most distinctive features of the city is its cleanliness.  Streets are litter-free and gardens are well kept.  The local government has made an effort to attract and use primarily high-tech, environmentally clean, science based industries to the city.
