Katzir-Harish (Hebrew: קָצִיר-חָרִישׁ‎) is a town (local council) in the Haifa District of Israel. It is an agglomeration of the villages Katzir, Harish and Mitzpe Ilan, near Umm al-Fahm in the Wadi Ara region. At the end of 2006, the town's population was 3,900.[1] Its jurisdiction is 9,736 dunams.[2]


Harish was founded by Nahal in 1982 and converted into a kibbutz in 1985. Katzir was founded by the Farmers Union of Israel. The villages were merged in 1993.[3]

Master plan

The master plan of Harish was prepared by the architecture firm Mansfeld-Kehat Architects. The plan calls for the expansion of Harish to Highway 60 in the north, and Baqa-Jatt in the south.[4]
