On the twelfth day of Menachem-Av, August 1924, the first settlers came to the ground here. Twelve middle-class families from Poland who purchased the land from the "Israel Land Development" company, joined by pioneers from Lithuania, Germany and Baghdad.
The settlers built barracks and tents that were at the mercy of the sky, rainfall in winter and summer in the summer. Drinking water was brought in barrels from Kfar Malal.
This synagogue was built as a multifunctional building in the year 1930, as a prayer house, a security center and an emergency hiding place. The building was built of concrete bricks that were prepared on the site, thick walls with firing holes in the roof railing.
The synagogue served as the center of religious and social life of the colony. It was a resident of the local committee and then a local council, a notary station (gaffirs) and a signal and communication station on the roof.
