In 1925, Nahalat Yitzhak was founded by a group of Jews who came from Kaunas, Lithuania. In the beginning, Nahalat Yitzhak was an agricultural colony, and only over the years did it become an urban neighborhood.
For a long time, this well served as the main water source of the settlement. A water tower was built near the well in 1926, and its lower level was used for gatherings and prayers, until 1934, when the Great Synagogue named after Rabbi Yitzchak Elchanan Spector, the Chief Rabbi of Kaunas and the leader of Russian Jewry was inaugurated in this complex, after whom the neighborhood is also named.
Before the establishment of the state, the well also served as a "slick" for hiding weapons of the "Haganah" organization. Nearby, in the deserted water well on Zeiman Street, the Irgun secretly operated a printing press to print leaflets against the British Mandate authorities.
