The Meirovitch House
The house, built in the 1880’s, was the home of Menashe Meirovitch, an agronomist, who arrived in 1883 to join his "Biluim" friends, workers hired by the Baron Rothschilds’ administrators. Menashe Meirovitch was involved in agricultural experiments, served as chairman of the Village Committee and was a writer and journalist. He lived to see the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.
