Zichron was founded as an agricultural settlement in the late 19th century by members of the Eastern-European Hovevei Tzion movement. When the community began to struggle, it was assisted by Baron Edmond de Rothschild and was eventually named in honor of his father Ya’akov.
Today, Zichron continues as a vibrant community with a wonderful mix of people. Olim feel a sense of belonging in the community almost immediately upon arrival. Its proximity, beautiful views, and abundant wineries make it a popular tourist destination.
