Alonim (Hebrew: אַלּוֹנִים, lit. Oaks) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located in the Lower Galilee, it falls under the jurisdiction of Jezreel Valley Regional Council. In 1947 Alonim had a population of over 450. In 2011 it had a population of 469.[1]

The kibbutz was established on June 26, 1938 as part of the tower and stockade settlement campaign. The settlers were the first graduates of Youth Aliyah.

During the 1936–39 Arab riots, Alonim was frequently attacked and three of its members were killed. It began as an orchard and dairy farm, and manufactured flutes, which were highly popular with Israeli children. Alonim has become a popular name in Jewish camping.[2] There Is a Camp Alonim in California, and the name Alonim is the name of the oldest age group at Camp Ramah in Canada.
