Kiryat Netafim’s story:
Kiryat Netafim was established in 1983 during Succot, by a non-profit organization of the Interior Ministry which included tens of families from various parts of the country. The sponsor and founder is Zacharia Dori.
The consideration for the location of the settlement is that it is another link in the chain of settlements along the Trans-Samaria Highway and the center of Samaria, an easy connection with the Rosh HaAyin and Petach Tikva areas. Northwest of Kiryat Netafim is the Arab village “Karwat-Beni-Chasan”. East of the village lie ancient remains from the time of Herod. East of the Arab village and north of Kiryat Netafim, there is a large region of burial caves, among them a large and beautiful cave called “Dariel-Daar”, considered to be the burial place of Herod’s treasurer. In the region there are also the remains of ancient agriculture, among them tens of ancient preservations of guard towers used by ancients.
