When was Modi’in Macabim Reut established?

The city of modii’in is in fact the result of a unification of authorities from 2003 with the old settlements of Reut and Maccabim. A unification that led to an area of over 50,000 dunams for the joint settlement.

The city was conceived by the founder of Maccabiah, Yosef Yekutieli, who is immortalized in the settlement of Maccabim. In reality, it was only in 1985 that Dr. Israel Peled began to establish the settlement of Maccabim. In 1990, the settlement of Reut also joined.

Story about Modi’in

The first tools for the establishment of the city of Modi’in came to the ground in 1994. Two years later in 1996, the population began to grow. At the time, the city was only a local district. Moshe Shecter was in charge of the district at the time, and was Mosi’in’s first mayor. Moshe struggled to establish Modi’in due to environmental organizations. These organizations sought to negotiate Hasmonean nature.
