Haifa


Haifa, Israel
Located at the base of Mount Carmel, and dating back to at least the third century AD, Haifa is the largest city in northern Israel, and the third largest city in the country over all. The city contains a seaport and is one of Israel's main industrial centers As of 2006, Haifa had an estimated population of 267,000.

Haifa is an important center of the Bahá'í faith, and there are a number of important Bahá'í sites on Mount Carmel's North slope. These include the Bahá'í World Centre (comprising the Shrine of the Báb, terraced gardens and administrative buildings), and the Bahá'í sites are in fact the most visited tourist attraction in the city.

Holy Land Travel: The Haifa Oil Refineries and Portrait of People (Israel Photography Paths Book 5)

By Chanan Getraide

Released: 2013-12-29
Kindle Edition

Holy Land Travel: The Haifa Oil Refineries and Portrait of People (Israel Photography Paths Book 5)
 
Product Description:
An intimate journey across landscapes and people in one of the most fascinating countries in the world.
"…Chanan’s work combines the professionalism of the working photographer, with the love of the amateur photographer. A rare gift indeed. One cannot fail to see the love and feeling for his subject in his prints."
David Rubinger, photojournalist, awarded the1997 Israel Prize in Communication.

"…And the outcome is nothing short of spectacular. In any of his series – be it "Industry," "People at Work," "People's Various Ways of Living," "Landscapes," or "Closer to Home," as Chanan Getraide calls it – there is no photograph that is not compositionally meticulous and almost obsessively abiding by the rules of aesthetics.
Professor Moshe Zukerman, sociologist and a professor at the Cohn Institute of History and the Philosophy of Science and Ideas, Tel Aviv University.

"In a country haunted by its past and its fear, it is heartwarming and refreshing to be inspired by the joy of Chanan’s observation and by the rainbow of colors in his work"
Micha Bar-Am, Photojournalist, awarded the 2000 Israel Prize in Photography.

"…Chanan Getraide's intimate knowledge of the land and considerable technical skill at making images cannot account for these visual insights. Rather it is an intuitive understanding that the Israeli landscape is different than other beautiful natural motifs in some fundamental way. Image after image proclaims that the intrusions of cultivation, roads, water works, electrical lines and housing upon an awesome natural landscape actually enhances the Land of Israel, fulfilling its promise as an inheritance to the Jewish People."
Richard McBee, The Jewish Press, NYC,
"Promised Land" Photographs by Chanan Getraide
At the Hebrew Union College NY Oct. 2004

Haifa : Or Life in Modern Palestine (Illustrated)

By Laurence Oliphant

Released: 2015-09-23
Kindle Edition (366 pages)

Haifa : Or Life in Modern Palestine (Illustrated)
 
Product Description:
The deep interest which the land of Palestine possesses for every thoughtful mind makes us all greedy for fresh and truthful information, alike concerning its present condition and the discoveries which new researches add to our knowledge of the past. From this point of view, many of the pages which follow are of exceeding importance. Every Christian will read with deep attention the author's description of the present state of places connected with momentous events of New-Testament history; and when, as in the present instance, the traveller and investigator is one whose judgment and whose accuracy may be entirely relied upon, the value of the report surpasses every careless estimate.
It is with this feeling that I have urged my friend to complete his work for publication, and with this feeling I earnestly commend it to the reader. Nor is its interest confined to historical and Biblical questions alone; the ethnologist examining the races of modern Syria, and the philosopher contemplating the marvellous processes of Asiatic transformation, will also find here material which will repay their most careful study.

Product Description:
Excerpt from Haifa, or Life in Modern Palestine
The experience and investigation of the last three years, however, have only served to convince me that the field of research is far from being exhausted, and that, should the day ever come when excavation on a large scale is possible, the Holy Land will yield treasures of infinite interest and value. Alike to the archaeologist and the historian.
