Hod Hasharon is a city in the center of Israel, located in the Sharon Valley, between Petah Tikva and Kfar Saba, east of Herzliya.

In the 1920s, four moshavs were established at the site where Hod Hasharon is now located: Magdiel, Ramatayim, Ramat Hadar and Kfar Hadar. Their inhabitants were repatriates from Poland and Lithuania.

In 1963 these settlements merged into one settlement. At the end of the 1980s, the number of its population increased sharply.

In 1990, Hod Hasharon was given the status of a city.

Due to its large area, the city retains a "village" style. There are not many multi-storey buildings here.

The city is actually a "sleeping area". The population of Hod Hasharon works mainly in neighboring cities.

On the outskirts of the city there is a small industrial zone.
