The village was founded as a moshav shitufi in 1976 by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, who lived there in the later years of his life. Many residents came to the settlement as a group from the United States, following the direction of Carlebach. Many came from or through the former "House of Love and Prayer" which was first established in San Francisco, and later in Jerusalem. The group is a collection of eclectic individuals, including musicians, artists, organic farmers, wine makers, perfumers and specialists in many areas. Many are excelled in their field in all of Israel.
The moshav has a hand painted and ornately decorated main synagogue painted by Yitzchak Ben Yehudah in its centre. Mevo Modi'im has a variety of eateries including Luciano’s, HaChatzer, Moshe Cohen's Falafel and Chai farm.
Moshav residents built a new pavilion near the ruins on the moshav in memory of Esh Kodesh Gilmore who was killed in a terrorist attack on 30 October 2000.
The Shlomo Carlebach Foundation is based out of Mevo Modiim.
