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.
