History[edit]

Geulim was founded on 17 November 1938 as a tower and stockade settlement by immigrants from Germany, and was initially named Bnei Geulim (lit. Sons of the Freed). In 1945 the residents moved to Kfar Yedidia, and members of the Talmon organisation of Yemenite immigrants settled in the area. They changed the name to Talmon-Geulim, and later to just Geulim. During 1948 Arab–Israeli War it was occupied by Arab forces[2]
