    Kadim’s story:
    The origin of the settlement’s name is symbolic. It is reminiscent of the Arab village of Beit Kad, in the valley north of the settlement. A Nachal outpost on the site was turned into a civilian town in 1983 by a nucleus of families who had previously temporarily settled in Sanur, for the purpose of establishing a communal secular settlement to join the bloc of settlements in northern Samaria, close to the Gilboa mountain range. The town was located inside of a large pine forest, in such a way that construction would fit into the forest surroundings with a minimum of destruction.
