Beit Rimon Wikipedia
It is named after the Biblical Rimon in the Tribe of Zebulun (Joshua 19:13), which "is identified with er-Rumane" at today's Arab village of Rumana, 2 km to the west.
Beit Rimmon was first settled in 1977 as a Nahal settlement and later became a civilian-inhabited village in 1979. Some residents live in the kibbutz, others in private houses in the communal neighborhood and others renting houses in the kibbutz.
The main economic branches of the kibbutz include a dairy herd owned in partnership with the Gesher and Ashdot Yaakov kibbutzim, a chicken coop and a company which imports and markets work tools.
The kibbutz also houses a pre-military school otherwise known as a mechina.
