Started as idea to built a ultra-orthodox Jewish city in the heart of the Shomron (Samaria) by the private venture of Kokhav HaSomron Company. Building started in 1981 with first families entering their homes in 1983 but the collapsing and the liquidation of the initiating company in 1985 (same year that it became Local Council) brought things to halt never to be recovered again. Pop: 2,400 (2003). Name taken from the bible (Isaiah 7,14)
