Near the city of Ramleh there is a moshav called Kefar Bin-Nun which was founded in 1952.

Its location in Emek Ayalon, where Yehoshua Bin-Nun succeeded in conquering the Canaanite armies, endowed it with the name of this great leader who succeeded Moshe and led the invasion and conquest of Eretz Yisrael.
