The Halvana Naiditz House
A two-storey house built of kurkar and clay.
It was built in the eclectic style. This construction is characterized by architectural details taken from different places and styles.
The building was built in the early 1920s.
Prior to this building, lived here in a hut building, Halvana Niditz, which came to the colony in 1882.
He served as a teacher in the Talmud Torah of Rabbi Aryeh Leib Frumkin and at the PIKA School.
Halvana adopted orphans to his home and even established a Talmud Torah in his home for the children of families who have difficulty paying.
The area was later sold to the Rab-Benazar family.
The brothers Yehuda and Moshe Samuel built the building and set up their offices here to market citrus fruit. In the yard, they set up a packing house ("Baika") for citrus fruits from their orchards and other farmers farms in Petah Tikva.
