The K'han Museum - Hadera
 

The "K'han" Museum is located in the historic center of Hadera. The impressive sandstone building was, originally, an Ottoman farmstead building dating from the mid 1800's. The building, together with the surrounding lands which make up the city of Hadera, was purchased in 1890 by four Zionist organizations from Eastern Europe.

                                                            
For six years, the K'han served as temporary living quarters for Hadera's first settlers. Only 11 original rooms remain today; Those house the city's archives, as well as displays narrating the history of Hadera. The rooms are also used for the purpose of cultural and educational activities. While in The K’han’s lecture room, you will also be standing in what was Hadera’s first synagogue, founded by the pioneers in 1891.

Sharon National Park
 

The 1500 acres of the Sharon National Park comprise a relatively large and uninterrupted slice of natural landscape, containing all the elements typical of the coastal plain. The park's green vista and open area separate the built-up Hadera area from the equally built-up Netanya area. In effect, without the Sharon Forest National Park the coastal plain would likely become just a string of urban settlements.

Caesarea National Park
 

Initially settled during the Hellenistic period (third century B.C.E.), when the Phoenicians built a small port city that they named Straton's Tower, the site takes between one and three hours to explore. Areas to visit include the entrance to the Crusader city, with tamarisk trees all around. Behind the port, Herod constructed arched storehouses, which are quite well preserved. Above the storehouses is the temple to Augustus Caesar and Rome. Two spots not to be missed are the largely intact Crusader wall and the earliest theater in Eretz Israel. Most of the 3500 seats were reconstructed and in the summer, the theater comes alive with performances of many kinds.

Heftziba

 

A settlement that is now more than 100 years old, Haftziba rests in the shadow of the Israel Electric Company’s Hadera Power Plant. Walk paths through gardens originally planted in 1905 and you will soon come to a series of buildings typical of those used by the settlers for living and farming. Further along the path are water buffalo, horses, donkeys and goats, feeding just as they would have when the property was a working farm. While most signs are in Hebrew, it is not difficult to take the walking tour and understand how these early Zionists lived. For information, please call 03-677777.

The Galina
 

 

 

 

 

 

Visit the Galina, a type of the nearly 100 ships that carried 122,000 “illegal” immigrants in defiance of the British blockade to Palestine between 1934 and 1948.

Once located, the ship will be converted to conform to the exact specifications of an “Illegal” Immigrant Ship which will become a special attraction in the National Living Museum of Atlit, allowing visitors to experience the feeling ma’apilim did more than 50 years ago. The exhibit is a joint project of Keren Hayesod-UIA, Jewish National Fund - USA, the Israel Electric Company, the Ministry of Tourism and the Society for Preservation of Israel Heritage Sites (SPIHS).
