Gan Yavne is a town in central Israel, located adjacent to the city of Ashdod. Gan Yavne was founded in 1931 and achieved local council status in 1950. It lies east of the Tel-Aviv–Ashkelon highway, and is bordered to the west by Ashdod, to the north by Gederot Regional Council, and to the east and south by Be'er Tuvia Regional Council. In 2012, Gan Yavne had a population of 20,698.HistoryGan Yavne was established in 1931 by the "Achuza Aleph" Company founded by several Jewish families from Russia and Poland, who had immigrated to the United States. The inspiration for its name "Gan Yavne", comes from its proximity to the historical Yavne. In 1930 land was purchased from the village of Kfar Barka and plans were drawn up to plant 400 dunams of orange groves. After negotiations with the Mandatory government in 1936-1938, a road was paved to Gan Yavne. The village was designed as a garden city.Urban developmentIn the 1990s and 2000s Gan Yavne more than doubled its population, becoming a commuter town. The development of Highway 4 ("the coastal road"), which is a freeway between Tel Aviv and Gan Yavne junction, and also the introduction of frequent rail service to the nearby Ashdod station, allows commuters to travel to Tel Aviv in 30–45 minutes.
