As part of the modern and advanced design of the Agrobank neighborhood, the northern square in the neighborhood was built in 1935. The planners were the engineers Jacob Shipman (Ben Sira) and Joseph Rings.
After the War of Independence, the square was named "Shiva Square" to mark the memory of the seven Hagana Notaries who were murdered in the foothills of the Arab village of Yesha on January 22, 1948.
The murder took place when the notaries set out to secure the transfer of a truck convoy to Tel Nof airport with the aim of bringing the Auster aircraft purchased by the Jewish Agency from the British. The Notre’s vehicle, an open van, came upon a mine and they were shot from the ambush.
The memorial stone was brought from a quarry in the Modi’in area, a sycamore tree planted in memory in the 1950s by the city’s gardeners.
