In the row of public buildings, it was the only one-story building. The building housed the office of the colonys management, the Temples cash register and the post office. The mail was distributed to the boxes in the wall of the building and access to the boxes was from inside and outside the office.
The accounting of the colony was subject to the audit of the general accounting of the organization. During World War II, when the place was under British control, it served as an accounting office and a place for distributing salaries to soldiers.
At the beginning of the Bnei Atarot moshav, the building served simultaneously as a clinic, secretariat, accounting office and post office.
Today the building serves as the "old member club" and post office of the moshav.
The building was renovated in an attempt to preserve the remains of the past: the Templar mailboxes remained in place but were covered with a plywood board and a layer of spray on top for protection.
All the windows remained in their original shape.
