General

Korazim (Hebrew: כּוֹרָזִים‎‎) is a communal settlement in northern Israel. It belongs to the Mevo'ot HaHermon Regional Council.

It was founded in 1983 as a moshav, but after it merged with Ma'of it became a communal settlement. It is found just north of Lake Kinneret. It is named after ancient Chorazin, mentioned in the New Testament (Matthew 11:21), now the site of a much-visited archaeological park, which is located about 1 km east of the modern village.
