Ortal (Hebrew: אוֹרְטַל‎) is an Israeli settlement and kibbutz in the northern Golan Heights. Located 915 meters above sea level and 20 kilometres (12 mi) northeast of Katzrin,[2] it falls under the jurisdiction of Golan Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 343.[1] The international community considers Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[3]

Economy

As of 2006, the kibbutz vineyard, affiliated with the Golan Heights Winery, produced three varieties of grapes: chardonnay, cabernet, and merlot.[4]
