בית העם
בתחילת שנות ה-60 עת גדל היישוב והתפתח, התעורר צורך באולם לפעילות תרבותית. האגודה החלה בבניית בית העם והחליטה לקרוא לו ע"ש רוז הלפרין, פעילה ציונית ונדבנית גדולה, שניאותה לתרום להקמת "בית העם".
ב-12 ביולי 1964 התפרסם בעיתון "מעריב": "טקס חנוכת בית העם הגדול ע"ש רוז הלפרין, מראשוני המנהיגות של הסתדרות הציונים "הדסה" בארה"ב, יערך הערב בכפר בצרה שבשרון".
טקס חגיגי ורב רושם התקיים ב-12 ביולי 1964 בהשתתפותה.
התרומה שהובטחה, מעולם לא הגיעה ובית העם נבנה כולו מכספי חברי המושב.
הבנייה, על ידי הקבלנים יצחקי וסטבינסקי מרעננה, נמשכה שנים אחדות והופסקה באמצע לאחר שבאחד מחגי ל"ג בעומר הדליקו ילדי המושב מדורה מתחת למדרגות בית העם, זרקו פנימה תפוחי אדמה והמבנה עלה באש.
מיום הקמתו ועד היום מהווה בית העם מקום מרכזי לטקסים, לחוגים לכל הגילאים ולאירועים קהילתיים שונים.

The sign shape is square but its head is designed according to the silhouette of the old building of the Gymnasia Herzliya, which serves as a logo of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel

From what is written on the sign, it appears that the way of the People’s House was not a genus in roses: a donation that was promised and did not arrive and a fire that occurred during its construction

Beit Ha’am
n the early 1960s, when the settlement grew and developed, a need arose for a hall for cultural activities. The association began building the People’s House and decided to name it after Rose Halperin, a great Zionist activist and philanthropist, who agreed to contribute to the establishment of the "People’s House".
On July 12, 1964, the newspaper Maariv published: "The inauguration ceremony of the Great House of the People named after Rose Halperin, one of the first leaders of the Hadassah Zionist Organization in the United States, will be held tonight in the village of Batzra in Sharon."
A solemn and impressive ceremony was held on July 12, 1964 with her participation.
The promised donation never came and the People’s House was built entirely from the money of the members of the moshav.
The construction, by the contractors Yitzhaki and Stabinski from Raanana, lasted several years and was stopped in the middle after one of the Lag B’Omer holidays, the children of the moshav lit a fire under the steps of Beit Ha’am, threw in potatoes and the building caught fire.
From its inception until today, Beit Ha’am has been a central place for ceremonies, classes for all ages and various community events.
