One Kibbutz Three Springs

by Rabbi Mendel Weinbach zt'l

In the Beit Shean Valley there is a kibbutz called Ein Hanatziv, which has three springs in it.

The name of the kibbutz and those of the springs can be traced to the renowned head of the Volozhin Yeshiva in prewar Lithuania, Rabbi Naftali Tzvi Yehuda Berlin. His initials (NaTzYV) form the main part of the kibbutz's name while the Ein preceding it alludes to the springs in it, which have been named Naftali, Tzvi and Yehuda.
