HistoryEdit

The village was founded on 12 May 1946 by demobilised soldiers from the British Army who had fought in North Africa and Italy during World War II and had first had the idea of establishing a moshav in 1941. Its name symbolises the founders' desire to live a free life.

Residents work in agriculture and factories for furniture, sunglasses and packaging, as well as a shopping centre, regional school and pensioners' home.
