Kfar-Maimon was founded in 1959 and named after Rabbi Y.L. Maimon - the leader of the Zionist Movement and the first minister of religions of the State of Israel.

Foundation process: The foundation ceremony of Kfar-Maimon was set to 16 of the month of Ab (August) of the year 1959, but the process of forming the founders' group and actual building of the settlement itself began five years earlier. In the summer of 1954 the members of "Eitanim" Tribe of the Bney Aqiva Movement completed their studies in "Mikveh Israel" high school. These studies and agricultural training do their job and some of the graduates ask for permission to found a settlement of Bney Aqiva with the intention to establish an agricultural moshav in the spirit of the values of the movement, the Torah and work.
