In 1944, the settlers Yossi Feldman, Israel Bleigrund-Kaholi and Pinchas (Giwelder) Amihud initiated the construction of a synagogue in the settlement. The synagogue was established by the "Haklai" association with the help of the residents’ donation.
Rabbi Gutman was the chief rabbi of the colony and the cornerstone laying ceremony, held in 1946, was in the presence of the chief rabbi, Rabbi Yitzchak Halevi Herzog.
At the ceremony, the first Torah scroll was brought into the synagogue, brought from Europe by Avner Avnery, one of the settlers.
