Beit Levi Eshkol

Levi Eshkol House


The building was constructed in 1933 as the home of Julius Jacobs, Deputy Governor of the Jerusalem District for the British Mandate and a founding member of the Philharmonic Orchestra. The building was designed by architect Benjamin Chakin and combines Mediterranean and Modern architectural motifs.

Following the death of Jacobs in the 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel, the house was used by the Jewish Agency, and between 1950-1974 it served as the prime ministers' official residence. Over the years it housed prime ministers David Ben-Gurion, Levi Eshkol and Golda Meir.

In 1977 the building was designated for the use of the Yad Levi Eshkol organization, to commemorate the life and legacy of Israel's third prime minister.

As a joint venture of Yad Levi Eshkol and the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, the building was renovated and is open to the public with a visitors' center dedicated to the life and work of Levi Eshkol, including his unique legacy to the founding and shaping of the State.

The garden at the Levi Eshkol House features environmental elements, such as an ecological pool, a green wall, composting, bird nesting boxes and more
