"Beit Harav"
The home of Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Hacohen Kook zt"l, who founded the Chief Rabbinate of Eretz Yisrael and served as its first chief rabbi from 1921-1935.
The house was built in 1923, with a generous donation from Mr. Harry Fischel. From the day of its completion, the building served as the home of Rabbi Kook’s yeshivah-The Central Universal Yeshivah ("Mercaz Harav") - and became an important spiritual center of Torah for the newly emerging yishuv in Eretz Yisrael.
