History[edit]

The moshav was founded in 1933 by immigrants from the United States, and was initially named Herut America Bet, as the moshav now known as Herut was named Herut America Alef at the time (there was also a Herut America Gimel, which is today called Hadar Am). The name was taken from the organisation which helped the residents immigrate to Mandate Palestine,
