In 1931, Ms. Malka Israeli donated the two-dunam plot of land for a synagogue to the residents of the colony. To this she added a considerable sum of money that enabled the beginning of construction. For, until the synagogue was established, the residents prayed in the Schlesinger family home.
Ms. Elka Yahalom and a member of the Moshava committee, Shmuel Galili, raised all the families of the Moshava for the purpose of construction. Everyone donated, some money, some work, and some synagogue accessories.
The Women’s sectuib served as a kindergarten for the children of the colony, until 1938. During the Mandatory period, the niche under the staircase for the women’s section served as a slick for the Haganah’s weapons.
The first Gabay and the main activist was Benjamin Wolfson, after whom the synagogue is named.
