Most of the kibbutz members are born and raised in Mishmar Ha’emek, but some of them also brought partners from other places in Israel and the world.
Some are former hired workers who decided to become members and some are former new immigrants from various countries.
The main language in Mishmar Ha’emek is Hebrew, but one can also hear English, Spanish, Russian, Dutch,French and more.
The kibbutz economy is based mainly on Tama Plastic Industry, but also agriculture still contributes to the kibbutz’s economic structure.l
