Kfar Shmaryahu Local Council
Local Council House
Named after Dr. Shmaryahu Levin (1867-1935), a Zionist leader, founder of the Technion and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Kfar Shmaryahu (founded in 1937) is named after him.
Beit Levin was established in 1939 on a hill in the heart of Kfar Shmaryahu, as a people’s home and community center with the help of the Levin family donation. It is a two-story house. Due to its location on the top of the hill and its exposure to riot shooting, reinforced concrete was built.
The garden was planted with the help of the donation of the High Commissioner, Sir Arthur Wauchope. Beit Levin conducted courses by the Defense Organization, served as an immigrant receptionist as well as a meeting between the Zionist leadership and representatives of the British Mandate.
The front of the building’s arches adorns the council’s emblem.
From the summer of 2001, Beit Levin serves as the local council house.
