“Spending the summer in Haifa was absolutely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The city is so vibrant and diverse, relaxed and easy going. The downtown area where we lived, along with the surrounding mountains and beaches very quickly became my home.” – Rachel B., Onward Israel Boston Haifa, Summer 2018
Haifa is one of Israel’s major port cities. The city reflects the broad human diversity of the Galilee at large – including Jews, Muslim & Christian Arabs, and Druze. Each of Haifa’s neighborhoods tells its own story about the past, present, and future of the city.
