Historic schools include the Alliance High School in Tel Aviv, Alliance Israélite Universelle High School in Haifa, Rene Cassin High School and the Braunshweig Conservative High School in Jerusalem. The network also includes the School for the Deaf in Jerusalem, in which deaf students, Jews and Arabs, with various mental and physical disabilities study together. The Mikve Israel Youth Village operates a state high school, a state-religious high school specializing in life and natural sciences, environmental sciences, and biotechnology; and a French-Israeli high school established in 2007 as a joint initiative of the Israeli and French governments. Israel Haverim history End of career Decommissioned on 1 July 1946, ''Mayflower'' was sold at Baltimore to Frank M. Shaw on 8 January 1947 for use in the Arctic as a sealer (Seal hunting). However, while sailing for sealing waters between Greenland and Labrador, early in March, ''Mayflower'' was damaged by fire off Point Lookout and forced to return to Baltimore. Collins Distributors Inc., purchased the ship early in 1948, installed new boilers in her at New York, and documented her as ''Malla'' under the Panamanian flag (Flag of convenience). She was subsequently fitted out at Genoa, Italy, ostensibly for coastwise trade in the Mediterranean. After sailing secretly from Marseilles, she arrived at Haifa in the British Mandate of Palestine on 3 September. On board were Jewish refugees. Most were former passengers of the ill-fated ''Exodus (Exodus (ship))'' which had been turned back from Palestine the previous summer.

The '''Shrine of the Báb''' is a structure in Haifa, Israel where the remains of the Báb, founder of Bábism and forerunner of Bahá'u'lláh in the Bahá'í Faith, have been buried; it is considered to be the second holiest place on Earth for Bahá'ís, after the Shrine of Bahá'u'lláh in Acre (Acre, Israel). Its precise location on Mount Carmel was designated by Bahá'u'lláh himself to his eldest son, `Abdu'l-Bahá, in 1891. `Abdu'l-Bahá planned the structure, which was designed and completed several years later by his grandson, Shoghi Effendi. thumb 250px Shrine of the Báb (view from Mount Carmel (Image:Bahai Temple.jpg)) thumb 250px right Shrine of the Báb and the Bahá'í gardens in Haifa (Image:Haifa 6801-11.jpg), Israel The remains of the Báb were buried on March 21, 1909 in a six-room mausoleum made of local stone. In a separate room, the remains of `Abdu'l-Bahá (Shrine of `Abdu'l-Bahá) were buried in November 1921. In 1929 three rooms were added to the mausoleum, and in 1949 the first threshold stone of the superstructure was laid by Shoghi Effendi. The construction was completed over the mausoleum in 1953 and was entirely paid for by Bahá'ís around the world.

military approach

that there is a negotiation partner on the Palestinian side, the plan has become redundant. *The military approach says that the plan is disastrous to Israeli security — not only will prevention of Qassam rockets and other attacks from Gaza become nearly impossible after the withdrawal, but implementation of the plan will be an important moral victory for Hamas and other organizations, and will encourage them to continue executing terrorist attacks against Israel. After World War II, the DC-5 did not re-enter series production as an abundance of surplus DC-3 C-47 aircraft were released into civil service. In 1948, the last surviving DC-5 (c n 426) ''VH-ARD'' of Australian National Airways was sold and smuggled to Israel for military use. The aircraft arrived at Haifa in May 1948, and from there went to Sde Dov, where its former markings were removed and the name "''Yankee Pasha - The Bagel Lancer''" was crudely painted on the nose by hand. The aircraft joined 103 transport squadron (103 Squadron (Israel)) at Ramat David (Ramat David Airbase), but as Israel was in the midst of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, was occasionally used as a bomber as well. This was achieved by removing the aft loading door and rolling the bombs out of the opening "by a judicious shove from a crewman's foot." Delta 1993, p. 65.

translation projects

it was capable of supporting the administrative structure envisioned by `Abdu'l-Bahá. Under Shoghi Effendi's direction, National Spiritual Assemblies (National Spiritual Assembly) were formed, and many thousands of Local Spiritual Assemblies (Local Spiritual Assembly) sprang up as the Bahá'í Faith spread around the globe. Then, during the 1930s he worked on a series of major translation projects, translating the works of Bahá'u'lláh into English. Starting in 1937, he set into motion a series of systematic plans to establish Bahá'í communities in every country of the world. The culmination of these plans was the Ten Year Crusade that covered the years from 1953 to 1963. Starting in the late 1940s, after the independence of Israel, he also started to develop the Bahá'í World Centre in Haifa, including the construction of the superstructure of the Shrine of the Báb and the building of the International Archives as well as beautifying the gardens at Bahji, where the Shrine of Bahá'u'lláh is located; these plans continued through the 1950s. In the 1950s he also continued building the Bahá'í administration, establishing in 1951 the International Bahá'í Council to act as a precursor to the Universal House of Justice, as well as appointing 32 living Hands of the Cause — Bahá'ís who achieved a distinguished rank in service to the religion and whose main function was to propagate and protect the religion. He also acted as the official representative of the religion to legal authorities in Israel. Private life Shoghi Effendi's personal life was largely subordinate to his work as Guardian of the religion. His lack of secretarial support with the mass of correspondence had left a pattern of hard work in Haifa interspersed with occasional summer breaks to Europe — in the early years often to the Swiss Alps. In 1929 and 1940 he also travelled through Africa from south to north. The city is located Wikipedia:Haifa Dmoz:Regional Middle East Israel Localities Haifa Commons:Category:Haifa


providing medical

with a single branch in Tel Aviv. After opening branches in Jerusalem and Haifa, it was extended nation-wide five years later, providing medical support to the public including not only Jews, but Arabs (Muslim, Druze, and Christian). On 12 July 1950, the Knesset passed a law making MDA's status as Israel's national emergency service official; Saving Lives at the Dead Sea: Magen David Adom Olympics on TV After the creation of Israel in 1948, large numbers of Arab Palestinians fled to, or were forced into, refugee camps in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The most popular recorded musicians at the time were the superstars of Arab classical music, especially Umm Kulthum and Sayed Darwish. The centers for Palestinian music were in the Palestinian (Palestinian people) (now Israeli) towns of Nazareth and Haifa, where performers composed in the classical styles of Cairo and Damascus. A shared Palestinian identity was reflected in a new wave of performers who emerged with distinctively Palestinian themes, relating to the dreams of statehood and the burgeoning nationalist (nationalism) sentiment. Early life and education Foot was born in Haifa, then part of the British Mandate for Palestine, and spent his youth at his uncle's house in Devon, in Italy with his grandmother and with his parents (who lived abroad) in Cyprus and Jamaica. He was sent to what he described as "a ludicrously snobbish prep school, Ludgrove (Ludgrove School) near Wokingham in Berkshire , and then to an only slightly less absurd public school, Shrewsbury (Shrewsbury School), in Shropshire." Introduction ''Words as Weapons'' ISBN 0 86091 527 1 Contemporaries at Shrewsbury included Richard Ingrams, Willie Rushton, Christopher Booker and several other friends who would later become involved in ''Private Eye (Private Eye (magazine))''. Loss On 12 June 1942, ''Nestor'' sailed from Haifa as part of the large escort force for Operation Vigorous; a Malta Convoy consisting of 11 merchant ships carrying food, fuel, and supplies for the besieged island. Air harassment of the convoy began almost immediately after leaving port. During the afternoon of 15 June, the convoy received word that a second convoy (Operation Harpoon (Operation Harpoon (1942))) sailing from the west had successfully arrived, and based on the quantity of air attacks and intelligence that an Italian fleet was in the area, it was decided to return the Vigorous convoy to Alexandria. A distinction is sometimes drawn between the '''Old Yishuv''' and the '''New Yishuv''': The Old Yishuv refers to all the Jews living there before the aliyah (immigration wave) of 1882 by the Zionist movement. The Old Yishuv residents were religious Jews, living mainly in Jerusalem, Safed, Tiberias and Hebron. Smaller communities were in Jaffa, Haifa, Peki'in, Acre (Acre, Israel), Nablus, Shfaram and until 1779 also in Gaza. A large part of the Old Yishuv spent their time studying the Torah and lived off ''Ma'amodot'' (stipends), donated by Jews in the Diaspora. High Commissioner Herbert Samuel (Herbert Samuel, 1st Viscount Samuel) declared a state of emergency, imposed press censorship, and called for reinforcements from Egypt. General Allenby (Edmund Allenby, 1st Viscount Allenby) sent two destroyers to Jaffa and one to Haifa. Samuel met with and tried to calm Arab representatives. Musa Kazim al-Husseini (Musa al-Husayni), who had been dismissed as Jerusalem's mayor on account of his involvement in the previous year's Nebi Musa riots (1920 Palestine riots), demanded a suspension of Jewish immigration (Aliyah). Samuel assented, and two or three small boats holding 300 Jews were refused permission to land, and were forced to return to Istanbul. At the same time, al-Husseini's nephew, Haj Amin al-Husseini (Mohammad Amin al-Husayni), was appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a decision that later faced much criticism. Early life Ya'alon was born as Moshe Smilansky and grew up in Kiryat Haim, a working class suburb of Haifa. He was active in the Labor Zionist (Labor Zionism) youth movement "HaNoar HaOved VeHaLomed" and joined a Nahal group named Ya'alon, a name he later adopted. Ya'alon is widely known by his nickname, "Boogie" (also sometimes spelled "Bogie" or "Bogey" in English) Wikipedia:Haifa Dmoz:Regional Middle East Israel Localities Haifa Commons:Category:Haifa

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.
