Shtarkman Erna Hotel Nahariya


It all began in the year of 1934 when Dr Suskin and Yosef Levi hit on the idea of starting a Jewish farming community north of Acre.
In 1935, the community of Nahariya was established, which eventually became a city, owing to the hard work of a group of German Jews hailing from all across Germany. The local authority also encouraged people to buy land.
In the 1930s, Dr Alois Shtarkman bought land near the seashore for the price of what was then three monthly salaries. The plot was empty until the end of the 1950s when the decision was made to build two houses for the Shtarkman Family (Alois and Charlotte) and the Bendheim Family (Erna and Herman).
