בית האבות

[תמונה: חיים אליעזר לזר (סבא לזר) בפתח מועדון הזקנים ע"ש רעייתו, 1950]

המבנה נבנה בשנת 1950 ע"י חיים אליעזר, שהיה מראשוני המתיישבים "הספרן" ואיש הרוח של ראשית היישוב. את הבית תרם למועצה המקומית. הוא עצמו לא זכה להנות מבית זה, כי נפטר בשנת 1952. הבית נקרא על שמו ושם רעייתו. הבית נמצא ברחוב רמב"ם, ובמהלך השנים חלו בו שינויים רבים וכיום הוא משמש כמשרדים של עיריית רעננה. העצים שבחצר ניטעו בשנות ה-30.

Retirement home

[Image: Chaim Eliezer Lazar (grandfather Lazar) at the entrance to his wife’s old-age club, 1950]

The building was built in 1950 by Haim Eliezer, who was one of the early settlers - the "Librarian" and the "intellectual" of the the settlement in its early days. He donated the house to the local council. He himself did not enjoy this house, because he died in 1952. The house was named after his wife and himself. The house is located on Rambam Street, and over the years it has undergone many changes and is now used as the offices of the Raanana Municipality. The trees in the yard were planted in the 1930s.
