Gal'ed (Hebrew: גַּלְעֵד, lit. Monument) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located in the Menashe Heights with an area of 14,500 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Megiddo Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 492.
Kibbutz Gal'ed was established in 1945 by a gar'in of German HaBonim members which had formed in 1938. Because the land on which the kibbutz lies was bought with money Yitzhak Ochberg, a South African philanthropist, had given, the Keren HaYesod wanted the kibbutz named Even Yitzhak (Hebrew: אֶבֶן יִצְחָק, lit. Stone of Yitzhak), but eventually the kibbutz had its way: the kibbutz is named Gal'ed in memory of the HaBonim members killed in World War II – established on the tract of land "Even Yitzhak." The land had traditionally belonged to the Palestinian village of Al-Butaymat, which became depopulated in 1948.
