From 1942 to 1948, the Tachkemoni School
was used by the Hagana - Israel’s pre-State army - to train its members in light weapons, topography, first aid, and signal communications.
The school also housed a secret arms cache that was seized during Operation Agatha - also called "Black Saturday" - conducted by the British Mandate government against the local Zionist leadership and the Hagana
