ALLONEI ABBA


ALLONEI ABBA
ALLONEI ABBA (Heb. אַלּוֹנֵי אַבָּא), moshav shittufi in northern Israel, in western Lower Galilee. Affiliated with Ha-Oved ha-Ẓiyyoni movement, Allonei Abba was founded on May 23, 1948, during the War of Independence. Many of the settlers   were survivors of the Holocaust from Czechoslovakia, Romania, Germany, and other countries. The economy was based mainly on farming: poultry, dairy cattle, field crops, and vineyards. In the mid-1990s the population was approximately 200, increasing to 283 in 2002. The name refers to the natural Tabor oaks in the vicinity (allon, "oak") and also commemorates the haganah hero Abba Berdiczew who died during World War II after having been parachuted into Slovakia.
