Zichron Ya’akov is one of the first Jewish Colonies in the Holy Land. Founded in 1882 by the Baron James (=Ya’akov) de Rothschild, Zichron Ya’akov is named after him.
Zikhron Ya’akov ( Hebrew: זִכְרוֹן יַעֲקֹב, lit. “Jacob’s Memorial”; often shortened to just Zikhron) is a town in Israel, 35 kilometres (22 mi) south of Haifa, and part of the Haifa District. It is located at the southern end of the Carmel mountain range overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, near the coastal highway ( Highway 2).
