|Founded by||Immigrants from North Africa|
|Name meaning||Meadow of the 58|
The moshav was founded in 1956. Its name is in memory of the 58 passengers who traveled on El Al Flight 402 that was shot down over the skies of Bulgaria about a year before the community was founded. The community was originally settled by immigrants from North Africa, and later other immigrants and native Israelis joined them.
The moshav was built, in part, on lands of a former Arab municipality, whose residents fled during the 1948 war.
