The original settlers were immigrants from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Austria, and the Baltic countries. Using intensive cultivation methods, they developed banana plantations. They also fished the nearby Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee). By 1947 it had a population of 450. Situated along a border shared with Syria, Ein Gev was shelled during the Battles of the Kinarot Valley and in other engagements during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. These dangers were only eliminated when Israel occupied the neighboring Golan Heights in the 1967 Six-Day War.Near the present-day village an important archeological site from the mesolithic Kebaran culture has been excavatedEconomyThe kibbutz operates a holiday resort and a fish restaurant. Agricultural branches include banana plantations and dairy farming.
