The Ateret Israel Yemeni Synagogue is partly located in the structure of the British camp that operated in Rosh Ha’ayin before the establishment of the State. This area between HaHtzmaut Streets - HaSofer - Gluska, was used during the mandate for the staff quarters, clinics and kitchens. There were also wells and two water towers.
During the activities of the Rosh HaAyin Immigrant Camp (1949-1951), the abandoned British buildings in this area served as a medical center that included a children’s hospital under Hadassah’s Jerusalem, a nursing home under WIZO, an adult hospital run by the Ministry of Health and a residence for the medical staff. This area was called "Hadassah I".
When the permanent settlement of Rosh HaAyin was established, the British buildings were used for various purposes: temporary housing for residents, home and office of the mythological midwife Judith Frank, local authority offices, synagogues, businesses and more. In the 1880s, the local authority began demolishing the buildings that remained in this complex and a neighborhood of high-rise buildings was being built.
