Givat Hen Beit Ha’Am
The Peoples House was the first public building built with the establishment of the moshav in 1933. It was called the "Public House", and was housed in a hut in the "Field Alley".
In the late 1930s, the Peoples House was built as a small stone house, where the new Peoples House stands today. The building of the Peoples House was used for a variety of different activities. In 1940, the building was split in two and also served as a school for the children of the moshav and the library. From 1943, the kindergarten operated there during the day, and in the evening, the members of the moshav gathered for members meetings, lectures, parties, poetry evenings or for many plays and performances written and presented by the members and youth.
The rich and vibrant social life characterized the moshav and became known all over the area.
The Peoples House celebrated the Jewish holidays, the weddings, the covenants, the birthdays, and even a second Passover Seder was held there.
A weapon slick was hidden under the eucalyptus tree and a bell was installed for security purposes or to invite members to meetings and parties.
The discussions in the assemblies were characterized by great fervor out of ideology and loyalty to Zionism, to Hebrew work, mutual aid and more.
In 1986 the new Peoples House was built.
In 2015 it was renovated and is still active today.
