The Dov (Ber) Kelez family immigrated to Hadera, as a member of the Riga Association in 1894. Their first home on Ehad Ha’am Street was a typical Rishonim house such as the Kotler House and the Smolnik House.
The house had a basement, which the Turks used in 1916 to torture the captured Nili underground members.
In 1900, Dov Kelez, the father of the family, died of malaria and was buried in Zichron Yaacov. In the same year, his daughter Hannah also fell ill, was rushed to Dr. Hillel Yaffe and died.
The current building is the second home of the Kelez family which was built in 1934. The house was designed by Hadera architect Ezra Rotman, as one of a series of high-rise buildings built in Hadera, inspired by the international style.
The two-story building was built in a symmetrical model with a stairwell in the center, with the ground floor intended for shops and upper floors for residential apartments.
