The village was established in 1950 as a kibbutz by refugees from Kfar Etzion and Be'erot Yitzhak (which had been captured by the Jordanian and Egyptian armies during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War) as well as Holocaust survivors and members of the Ahdut and Tikva kvutzot. It was named after Kfar Etzion.
In 1953 it converted to a moshav shitufi.
