1926 - The First Houses


Following the success of the Arab al-Jawwarna group in the well-publicized trial to prove possession of the land, they came down from the hill on which they were sitting at the place where Ma'agan Michael is located today (and the cemetery of Jessar is located) and moved to the more southern hill. On this hill, along a street, plots were distributed to the main families. Each family received 30 dunams and the first houses were built from the local kurkar land. The lands given to the residents of Jessar by virtue of the possession of the land were mainly sufficient for residence and not for agriculture, which the residents were engaged in until then, which affected the areas of occupation later on. From here the residents of Jessar moved to different jobs instead agriculture.
