History

The moshav was established in 1953 by Moroccan immigrants and refugees. Its name is taken from the Book of Isaiah, specifically Isaiah 41:19:

I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia-tree, and the myrtle, and the oil-tree; I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane-tree, and the larch together; [2]

Two other nearby moshavim, Brosh (cypress) and Ta'ashur (larch) take their name from this passage and the three of them are known as the Moshavei Yahdav (lit. the "Together Moshavim").
