Yellin House
The Yellin and Yehudah families, members of Jerusalem’s Old Yishuv, purchased agricultural land in the Motza valley in 1860. Yehoshuah and Serach Yellin built the Khan (now a synagogue) and planted fruit trees, thus establishing the first Jewish agricultural settlement in modern history. The Yellin family home was completed in 1890. The house and its surroundings were restored by The Society for Preservation of Israel Heritage Sites, in collaboration with the Yellin family, aided by generous donations from Sarah and Ezer Israeli, Mr.Leonard Kahn and the JNF, and now serves as a Visitor’s Center.
