The kibbutz was established 80 years ago.
In October 2005 four families got together who spearheaded the nucleus of the families who sought to join the kibbutz of Neve Yam.
The nucleus was called “El HaYam” (to the sea) and the initiator was Avi Farhan, one of the founders of Eli Sinai.
Slowly, families from seven Gush Katif communities joined this nucleus: from Nissanit, Dugit, Eli Sinai, Rafiah Yam, Kfar Yam, and Gadid.
They were joined by Ganim from the northern Shomron.
15 years after the August 2005 expulsion they are still in caravillas, still fighting for their rights.
Five families are at an advanced stage with their architects. None of the families has building permits and they are still working on infrastructure.
There are some 40 families in this nucleus of which 16 are living in a caravan neighborhood in the northern part of the kibbutz and the rest are scattered
throughout various communities in Israel’s south.
