An Agricultural School was founded by the I.C.A  about 1900 but was practically destroyed in the Civil Wars. In 1925, it was rebuilt by the American Jewish Joint Disribution Committee and conducted as a J.D.C school. The school had a large number of buildings and about 1500 acres of land. It is situated among the colonies. Large number of cattle are cared for by the students.


Nearby is the communal grave of 1918 pogrom victims. Over 150 are buried in this common grave.


This colony was destroyed by raiding bands and was gradually rebuilt with contributions of the J.D.C and I.C.A. There were about 2500 people in 400 homes in 1925.
