Pinsteps. The public house

A people's house, or, simply put, a city club was built in 1898 on the initiative of the settlers and at their expense. It was a place for concerts, performances, receptions, and meetings. The first of the famous guests who had the honor of performing for the residents was Theodor Herzl. Lots of the children born in Rishon LeZion that year were named Herzl or Herzliya. In the following 1899, Baron Rothschild and his wife visited Rishon LeZion again. For many years above the entrance hanged a plaque that testified about this event. That's when in the city there were talks about the wife of Baron Rothschild, Adelaide. It was said that the Baron's philanthropic work was largely supported by his wife and that it was thanks to her that Rothschild still supported the settlements. During this visit, seeing that Rishon LeZion was firmly on his feet, Rothschild reduced funding and gave control to the local council.

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.
