History of Beth Joles
The history of the Beth Joles retirement home in Haifa actually begins in 1944. During this year, and while the holocaust was still raging throughout Europe, 222 Dutch Jewish prisoners from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp were exchanged with a group of German Templers living in what was then called Palestine. Their arrival in Palestine called the founders of the IOH (Irgoen Olei Holland – Israeli Dutch Immigrants’ Association), Leev and Mirjam de Leeuw, to action. Their intention was to establish a home in which to receive the Dutch-speaking seniors in a Dutch-Jewish environment which would make them feel at home.
Only the “Beit Zkenim” fund in Groningen and the “Joles Jewish Hospital” fund in Haarlem agreed to provide a significant amount of funds to this end. Haarlem provided the largest share of the funds that were used for establishing the Haifa-based Beth Joles Company Ltd. in 1953.
Beth Joles accepted its first residents at 9 Tel Mana Street, Haifa in July 1956.
An additional wing was built in 1964.
During the 1970s, the Israeli government began to investigate the issues relating to the treatment of its senior citizens in earnest. At the time, Beth Joles was in need of expansion and modernization. Perceiving the needs of its residents, the home’s management began to plan the construction of an assisted living ward long before its new complex was built, based on the understanding that long-time residents should not be forced to leave the home in the twilight of their lives.
In 1979, supported by donations and by the proceeds from selling the retirement home at 9 Tel Mana Street to the Clalit Health Fund (Kupat Cholim Clalit) – which was at the time engaged in the construction of the Lady Davis Carmel Medical Center (Carmel Hospital) – Beth Joles moved to a new building in Kikar Ha’Rakafot. A new, 36-bed, state-of-the-art assisted living ward was opened in 2008.
The home currently has 65 residential units for independents and 36 beds in the assisted living ward.
