Chaya Rachel Nachumovsky with her second husband Noah Milner and two of his children, Abigail and Yefet The Nahumowski Milner House
The story of the house is more than the story of Chaya Rachel Nachumovsky-Milner 1872-1948, a story of courage and determination to hold on to Hadera despite the great personal loss.
Chaya of the Kotler family, born near Kaunas - Lithuania in Russia. At the age of 18, she married Menachem Mendel Nahumovsky. Six weeks after the wedding, she immigrated to Eretz Israel with her husband and mother (Sarah Kotler) to live on a 125-dunam estate they purchased in Hadera.
Upon their arrival they lived in Khan, where their first son Matityahu was born. Over the years, Chaya Rachel lost her three daughters (Batya, Liba and Nehama) and her husband, to malaria. It is said that when she lost her infant daughter Nehama, shortly after her husband’s death, she held the baby’s body outside the window of the house as a virtue for preventing disaster and said - "Our God, may this be the last victim"
. Despite all the disasters that befell her, Chaya Rachel refused to leave Hadera. When she married widow Noah Milner in 1910, a father of 5 orphans, she cared for them as her own children and together they also raised their joint daughter Sarah.In one of the night raids of the Turks, who were looking for members of the Nili group in Hadera, Chaya Rachel goes out in the middle of the night, to warn the young people who spent time at Beit Hapoalim. Thanks to her, Aharonson family, Avshalom Feinberg and others survived.
With other women (Rachel Botkowski, Chaya Rotman and Gabi Rapaport) she founded the "Women’s Aid" association in Hadera - the first nucleus of women, who volunteered for charitable giving, maternity assistance and assistance to Yemeni immigrants.
