Haifa

'''Haifa''' (

Built on the slopes of Mount Carmel, the history of settlement at the site spans more than 3,000 years. The earliest known settlement in the vicinity was Tell Abu Hawam, a small port city established in the Late Bronze Age (Bronze Age) (14th century BCE). Encyclopedia Judaica (Encyclopaedia Judaica), ''Haifa,'' Keter Publishing, Jerusalem, 1972, vol. 7, pp. 1134-1139 In the 3rd century CE, Haifa was known as a dye-making center. Over the centuries, the city has changed hands: It has been conquered and ruled by the Phoenicians, Persians (Persian Empire), Hasmoneans, Romans (Ancient Rome), Byzantines (Byzantine Empire), Arabs, Crusaders (Crusades), Ottomans (Ottoman Empire), British (British Mandate for Palestine), and the Israelis. Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the city has been governed by the Haifa Municipality.

Today, the city is a major seaport (Port of Haifa) located on Israel's Mediterranean (Israeli coastal plain) coastline in the Bay of Haifa (Haifa Bay) covering north of Tel Aviv and is the major regional center of northern Israel (North District (Israel)). Two respected academic institutions, the University of Haifa and the Technion (Technion – Israel Institute of Technology), are located in Haifa in addition to the largest k-12 school in Israel, The Hebrew Reali School. The city plays an important role in Israel's economy (Economy of Israel). It is home to Matam (Matam, Haifa), one of the oldest and largest high-tech parks in the country.
