Abstract: The article portrays the story of the founding mothers of Moshav Beit Hillel in Northern Israel that was largely erased from the villages' collective memory. It argues that without their entrepreneurial and resilient spirit, Beit Hillel would not have survived, thus hinting at the key role such women played in the history of the agricultural settlement in Israel.

Keywords: agricultural settlement in Israel; entrepreneurship; Moshav Beit Hillel.
