Nof HaGalil

Description

Nof HaGalil (Hebrew: נוֹף הַגָּלִיל‎, lit. View of Galilee; Arabic: نوف هچليل‎) is a city in the Northern District of Israel with a population of 41,734. Founded in 1957 as Nazareth Illit (נָצְרַת עִלִּית‎), it was planned as a Jewish town overlooking the Arab city of Nazareth and the Jezreel Valley. Today, 23% of the city's population is Arab. Its name was changed in 2019 to "Nof HaGalil" following a plebiscite in which 80% of voters approved the change. Only 5,000 residents of the former Nazareth Illit participated in the referendum (roughly 12% of the city's residents at the time).
