|Founded by||New immigrants|
The kibbutz community was formed in 1947 by immigrants from Argentina, Poland, Romania and Turkey, and the physical kibbutz was established in 1948 on the lands of the Palestinian village of al-Tira, which was depopulated during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, 1.5 km southwest of the village site.
The main Traditional livelihood branches of the kibbutz are field crops, orchard (near Nahal Tavor ), almond and olive groves, barn, house sheep, beef, and chicken coop. The Kibbutz also runs a community pub. Apart from these fields, The Kibbutz's main income is largely based on the Factory " Plazit " that produces rigid plastic sheets, plastic products primarily for the food trays for the food industry (with grouping ascending ). In recent years, the factory has incorporated a number of other factories, and even bought factories in Bulgaria and Chile. In 1952 "Naaman Gazit ", a factory producing porcelain plates, was established at the kibbutz, but closed several years later.
