The Beit Halochem Haifa center opened in 1986. Its unusual architectural features make Beit Halochem Haifa one of Israel’s more interesting buildings. More than 2,800 disabled veterans who live in the north make up the active membership, with a total of 9,000 participating members, families included.
Situated on the western slopes of the French Carmel, the complex covers about 7,000 square meters. The three-story main building houses a social wing, 180-seat auditorium, multipurpose gymnasium, classrooms, fitness rooms, indoor swimming pool, shooting gallery, cafeteria and offices.
A major portion of the original funding for establishing Beit Halochem Haifa came from The Brith Sholom Foundation in Philadelphia.
