History[edit]

The kibbutz was established in 1943 by a group which had formed in 1933. The land on which the village was founded had been bought from the Arab village of Ijlil by the Jewish National Fund. Its name is mentioned in the book of Samaritans, which was also preserved in the name of the Arab village.[citation needed]
