Pinsteps. Asher Levin house

Originally a luxurious two-story house intended for Belkind family was built by Asher Levin, a wealthy peasant who did not need the support of Rothschild. When Belkind couldn't continue construction due to financial reasons, Levin bought the house. Levin's children lived there. On the first floor there was a clinic of Levin's son Gideon, and on the second floor lived his son Elisha with his family. Gideon studied medicine in Paris, where in the 20s of the 20th century he met Elena Rubinstein, a ballerina from Russia. They had a daughter Zahavit. Zahavit lived in London for a long time because she was the wife of Alfred Sherman, a personal secretary and a speechwriter for Margaret Thatcher. In 1983, Sherman was awarded the title of Sir by the Queen of England, and Zahavit became a Lady. But people knew and loved Zahavit not because of the title. Her father Gideon treated soldiers for free, saying: "This is my contribution to the combat capability of the country." Zahavit's uncle, Gideon's brother Elisha was the first importer of Wilis cars in the country. He also was the first man who had a car in Rishon LeZion.

Rishon leZion. This is where it all began. This is not just an expression – this is history.

This is a special tour and a unique route. Its difference from the usual city tour is that your mobile phone is the guide. As in every excursion, it takes time to get used to the tour guide, his style, rhythm and pathways. The only difference is that in this case, you are the storyteller, you are walking yourself and set the pace for yourself - all according to your style. Just give yourself time to get used to it and you will come to life with a story full of the vicissitudes of the lives of real people, a story about their joys and sorrows, a story in which urban legends rise from the past, instill hope and simply sums up: here it all began.
