Rosh HaAyin is a city in the center of Israel, close to Petah Tikva.

Its name is connected with its location - at the source of the Yarkon River.

Rosh HaAyin was founded in 1949.

The first inhabitants of the city were Jews from Yemen, who immigrated to Israel in 1949-50 during Operation "On Eagles' Wings".

In the 90s new areas were added to Rosh HaAyin. The city grew due to new immigrants from the CIS countries.

Rosh HaAyin received the status of the city in 1994.
