The founder Levi Itzhak Eisenberg was born in Nikolayev, Russia.
He came to Eretz Israel in 1882, joined the Committee of the First Pioneers? and was one of the founders of Rishon Le Zion. He was a signatory to Rishon Le Zion's first Charter. When they came to take over their land in 1882 he found a place in one of the tents at the top of the hill. A "Sefer Torah" which had been brought from abroad by Yosef Feinberg was taken into the tent.
With the approach of winer Eisenband started to construct the first homes in the village and he was the first to celebrate the completion of his home. The house was a meetng place for members of the village, always open house for visitors and was also used as a house of prayer. He paid for the construction of a large oven for baking bread which anyone in the village could use.
He was one of the first to plant a vineyard and took great care of his vines and looked after them as he looked after his beloved children.
He was one of the four "rebels" against the Baron's officials in 1887
