The Ostrovsky House
Built in January 1931 as the residence of Baruch Ostrovsky, the first councilor of Raanana, one of the founders of Ahuza A - New York. As a fighter for social equality, whose love of the land stood before his eyes, Ostrovsky endeavored to instill values and heritage for all, and made his home as a unique cultural center of rich spirituality that was open and accessible to every resident. During the mandate and in the years following the establishment of the State, Ostrowski’s office visited by the Deputy Gov. David Ben-Gurion, Dr. Haim Weizman, the leaders of the community and public figures, and discussed fateful decisions in the struggle for the state’s rebuilding alongside current municipal issues.
About five thousand books in the house were used by the residents of the colony, who assisted them as much as they could, with Ostrovsky conducting and direct discourse in the atmosphere of human brotherhood and expansion, and even received the warm welcome of the council’s wife.
Until Ostrovsky’s death in 1960, the house served as a gathering place and a toast on Independence Day and Jewish holidays
