HaHotrim (Hebrew: הַחוֹתְרִים, lit. The Rowers) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located near Tirat Carmel, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 790.[1]


The beginnings of the kibbutz were in December 1941, with the formation of a work company near Kiryat Haim by Jewish refugees from Czechoslovakia and Germany.[2] The kibbutz was established in 1952 on the land of a depopulated Palestinian village named al-Tira.[3][4]
