This is the first operating school in the world, where teaching was carried out in Hebrew. The school was founded in 1886. It was named after Dov Haviv Lobman, who was a teacher and a principal of the school. The Lobman family dates to the famous Jewish sage Rabenu Tam, who lived in France in the 12th century. Almost all the sons of the family were preparing to become rabbis. Being originally from Russia and having received traditional religious education, Dov imbued with the ideas of enlightenment and Zionism and moved to Moscow keeping this in secret from his family. From there he moved to Paris and in 1885 to Turkish Palestine with his brother. He advocated for the introduction of Hebrew as a spoken language. All teaching at the school was carried out in Hebrew, even exact sciences and literature.
