בית העם
Beit Ha’Am

בית העם שנחנך בדצמבר 1939 נועד להיות בית תרבות, בית תפילה ומשרד להנהלת הכפר. הבית, שנבנה על אדמת ’פרדס טוסקניני’, תוכנן בידי האדריכל חנן פאבל ונבנה בבנייה קלה מטעמי חיסון. ברבות השנים שונה והורחב, והוא משמש עד היום כמרכז תרבותי, דתי וחילוני של הכפר.
בשנת 1953 הוקמה בחזית בית העם האנדרטה לזכר בני הכפר שנפלו במלחמת העצמאות, שגם אותה תכנן האדריכל פאבל.
בית העם שופץ והורחב בשנת 1959 וקיבל את צורתו הנוכחית. ב-1981 וב-1983 שופץ שוב ובוצעו בו בעיקר שינוי תשתיות, אך מבנהו החיצוני לא שונה.

Beit Ha’Am was inaugurated in December 1939 and was intended to be a cultural and religious center as well as the offices of the directors of the village. It was built on the land of the Toscanini orchard and designed by arčhitect Chanan Pavel and built with light materials for reasons of economy. Over the years it was modified and expanded, and is used until this very day as the cultural, religious and secular center of the village.
In 1953 a monument was constructed in front of the building in memory of those residents who fell in the War of Independence. This was also designed by the architect Chanan Pävel.
In 1959 the building was expanded to its present size.
