|Founded by||Demobilized soldiers|
The community was founded in 1949 by a group of demobilized soldiers on part of the lands of the depopulated Palestinian Arab village of Al-Bassa, and was originally called Tzahal. Afterward its name was changed to Liman to honor the American senator Herbert H. Lehman. In 2005 it had a population of about 500. Its area is about 2400 dunams. Most residents work in agriculture, such as plantings and chicken raising.
The Liman Nature Reserve is located about 1 km (1 mi) north of the settlement, an area of about 50 dunams on a section of the gravel ridge that was preserved.
