History[edit]

The kibbutz was established on 2 November 1946 by Jewish immigrants from Czechoslovakia, Germany and Austria. It was named in honour of Mordechai Rozovsky, a Zionist activist in Argentina.

Aside from agriculture, the kibbutz is the home of Teva Naot, which is a shoe factory with many branches all over Israel and some selling overseas.
