HistoryEdit

KadimaEdit

Kadima was founded on 5 July 1933 as an agricultural settlement at the initiative of Yehoshua Hankin. Most of the settlers were German immigrants.[2] The name means "forward" in Hebrew, and was taken from a Biblical verse (Habakkuk 1:9).[2] The town was declared a local council in 1950.

TzoranEdit

Tzoran, meaning silicon, was founded in 1992 and was planned by architect Rachel Walden. The settlement was named after a Hasmonean city that had existed in the area. It was first populated in 1994, and declared a local council in 1997.
