|Founded||30 October 1946|
|Founded by||Austrian and German immigrants|
The kibbutz was established on 30 October 1946 by the Zara'im kvutza, which was largely composed of immigrants from Austria and Germany who had arrived before the start of World War II. The group had congregated in Ein Harod in 1942 in order to prepare for establishing a new village. The new kibbutz was named after the Levite city of Daberath which was located in the area belonging to the Tribe of Issachar (Joshua 21:28).
