History[eedit | eedit soorce]

The toun wis built frae scratch as a planned community accordin tae urban plannin paradigms no unlike Modi'in an nearbi Shoham. While those touns wur designed tae suit a mixed population o non-releegious an releegious, El'ad wis oreeginally planned tae suit a mixed population o Modren Orthodox/Releegious Zionist Jews an Haredi Jews, but the majority are nou Haredi. It wis built as a pairt o the solution tae the acute shortage o alternate an affordable hoosin for Haredi families who, traditionally, wur concentratit primarily in baith Jerusalem an Bnei Brak. Accordingly, El'ad wis planned in a way that wad suit the releegious lifestyle wi a lairger selection o hoosin options wi some projects afferin lairger than average apairtments tae accommodate releegious families who tend tae hae mair childer than the average naitional population. Anither unique characteristic wis easy access an short walkin distances tae local education institutions tae avoid the need for schuil transportation costs.

The Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi is Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Grossman an the Chief Sefardi Rabbi is Rabbi Mordechai Malka. There are at least 18 synagogues o different Jewish ethnic persuasions. A central charitable organization is Kupat Hatzedoko Matan Beseter.[2]

On 5 Februar 2008, El'ad's offeecial status wis chyngit tae a ceety.[3]
