Zikhron Ya’akov (Hebrew: זִכְרוֹן יַעֲקֹב, lit. “Jacob’s Memorial”; Arabic: زخرون يعكوف) is a town 35 kilometres (22 mi) south of Haifa. It is located at the southern end of the Carmel mountain range overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It was one of the first Jewish settlements of Halutzim in the country, founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond James de Rothschild and named in honor of his father. The original Carmel-Mizrahi Winery continues to make wine in Zikhron Yaakov.
The town draws many tourists attracted to its picturesque setting and historic city center whose restored main street of landmark buildings, Derekh HaYayin (“Path of the Wine”), houses coffee houses and boutique shops selling locally-made crafts, jewellery, and antiques, especially on the town’s famous “Midrachov” — Founders Street.
