Was established in 1933 by a group of 10 pioneers from Russia and Poland in the Sharon valley. This area was flooded with swamps and Malaria disease. After few years of draining the swamps they managed to establish a flourishing village that is gradually growing. Today 600 people (include childrens) are living in the kibbutz. The economic base of the kibbutz is divided into agriculture crops ( avocado and citrus plantation, wheat and corn fields) and large number of members who works off the kibbutz at various jobs. A large oservice sector insure that the kibbutz is highly independent and includes kitchen, dining room, laundry, kinder gardens, education system, health service, etc'.
