The Jewish National Fund Neighborhood
In 1912, a neighborhood was established in this place designed to absorb ten families of Yemeni immigrants who came to Eretz Israel in Aela BaTamar Aliyah and worked in the colonys orchards.
The neighborhoods land was purchased by the Jewish National Fund and its houses were built by the communitys institutions. It was a neighborhood of one street that connected Tel Aviv street and "the first quorum". On both sides of the street were small huts that were plastered with clay and whitewashed in white. In the courtyards adjacent to the houses the settlers grew vegetables and beside each house you could also see a small chicken coop.
The dream of the residents of the small neighborhood was to establish their own agricultural moshav, and in 1929-1930 they immigrated to the settlement of Tirat Shalom.
In 1959, Tirat Shalom was annexed to Ness Ziona and was incorporated as a neighborhood in the city.
