Petach Tikva is founded by religious pioneers in 1878 as the first modern Jewish settlement – with the assistance of funds from Baron Rothschild. It is situated near the sources of the Yarkon River. Petach Tikva becomes known as the “Mother of the Moshavot.” Founded by Jerusalem Jews, it is abandoned and then reconstituted in 1882 by immigrants of the First Aliyah.
