- In mid-1947, Eldar was transferred from the Chish Haifa unit to the Palyam 10th Company, which then Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion ordered to open the road to Jerusalem. The unit cleared the way from Sha'ar Hagai and conquered the San Simon Greek Monastery, uniting Kibbutz Ramat Rachel with the rest of Jerusalem.
