The community was established in 2003 and named after the “kida” plant – the Calicotome spinosa or spiny broom, which covers vast stretches of land on the nearby hills. There are 56 families in the town and local services include a synagogue, community services and kindergartens.

Worth Visiting: The Kida Lookout, with a view of the Jordan Valley; Maanit – Glass Crafting Studio.
