Among the Goodman family there was a fierce debate over whether to immigrate to Eretz Yisrael or to remain in Poland their homeland. The compromise was to immigrate to Eretz Israel and build a house similar to their home in Poland.
The house was built by contractor Mordechai Rothbard and his sons. When he was hired for work, he received one dwelling out of the two identical apartments built. Construction continued for about a year and a half and ended in 1927.
The magnificent house was built according to a unique architectural plan, silicate bricks brought from Tel Aviv, which were artistically chiseled, and matched the wishes and vision of the two families for whom the house was built.
