Bror Hail was founded in 1948 by the core of the Hahalutz Movement from Egypt, and it was the first settlement founded after the declaration of Independence of the State of Israel. Shortly after its foundation Bror Hayl was chosen as the target kibbutz of the Brazilian Youth Movement "Dror" and later by "Dror Habonim" and began to absorb large numbers of immigrants from Brazil. Thus, Bror Hail became the central kibbutz of Brazilian emigrants in Israel, or as its members like to say, into the largest Brazilian kibbutz in the world.
The origin of the name is somewhat obscure, however it seems that sometimes in the distant past a station for "soldiers inquiries" was located at the same place, a sort of mobilization base of today. Likewise, in the past, an Arab village named "Brur" was located at the same location.
