This rent-free building was allocated to us by the Haifa Municipality in recognition of the importance of our work in the local community. The building is a historic site, designed by Alexander Berwald and built in 1930. Called Izkovitch House, it is named after Aliza and Dr. Yitzchak Izkovitch, one of the first Jewish physicians in Haifa and one of the founders of the Israel Medical Association. The offices of the Community Committee were located in the building and after that, the Haifa Rabbinate until the end of the 1970's.
