This house was the residence of Rabbi Aryeh Levin, who was born on Nissan 6, 5645 (March 22, 1885) in Orla, Poland. For many decades, Rabbi Levin served as a teacher and spiritual mentor at Talmud Torah Etz Haim. In addition to his work at the yeshiva, he endeavored to reconcile unhappily married couples, visited the sick, and comforted mourners.
During the period of the British Mandate, Rabbi Levin would go every Shabbat morning to visit imprisoned members of the Jewish underground, uplifting their spirits, praying with them, and teaching them Torah and Jewish ethics. This practice led to his being called "the Rabbi of the Prisoners." After the establishment of the State of Israel, he founded and headed the Beit Aryeh yeshiva. Rabbi Levin passed away on Nissan 9, 5729 (March 28, 1969).
