Neighborhoods in Zichron Yaakov

See what makes Zichron so popular!

From history to culture and the diversity of its citizens, it is truly a unique place to live!


The heart of Zichron and the historical epicenter of the town. The Aaronson museum, First Aliyah museum, the historical Bet Knesset Ohel Yaakov, and other historical sites dot the landscape as you walk through the center of town.  Each alleyway is steeped in its own rich history and if you come across the right local, he or she will be able to tell you all about it! 

The Moshava is filled with lots of newcomers and some who are descendants of the original settlers of Zichron. A close walk to shopping, cafes, Synagogues, medical facilities and the Midrachov it is a great landing spot for people who want or need the ability to walk almost everywhere. Public transportation within Zichron and to the surrounding areas is readily available from the center of town.  Housing options range from free standing houses to multi-family condominium developments.

Mul Hayekev

Built adjacent to the Carmel winery (hence the name) it is a literal stone's throw away from the magnificent Park Hamoshava and Zichron’s new school complex. This neighborhood is perfect for those who want to have their kids walk to and from school! Like Zichron, it is a diverse crowd of ages and backgrounds with apartments and two-family houses. A shopping center, health clinics, ganim, and a variety of Synagogues are all within walking distance.

Neve HaBaron

Named after the Baron, it is a pastoral and rustic setting occupying the southwest side of Zichron. Larger housing options, yards, and extended privacy await you here. In some parts you are just a few minutes walk from accessing the Ramat Hanadiv nature reserve and some beautiful walking and biking trails.  Neve HaBaron has two local shopping centers and its own little “tayelet” occupying space within the forest running through its midst. There are a variety of neighborhood "ganim" and a local Synagogue.

Villot BaHoresh

Literally meaning the “Villas of the Woodlands” this neighborhood is nestled into the northeasters hill of Zichron, and is quiet, with rustic narrow streets. Walkable to the Horesh elementary school and ideal for families with cars who are looking for a sleepy part of town to settle down in.  The houses and plots of land tend to be a bit larger here than in other parts of Zichron offering additional space for those with larger families or who just want a larger backyard to relax in.

Givat Eden

Occupying its own mountaintop at the northern most point of Zichron, Givat Eden offers sweeping views to the sea. If you settle down here, prepare to drive to most locations in Zichron itself but the views and size of the houses make it all worth it! There are wide streets (a rare phenomenon in Israel) and multiple local parks, giving Givat Eden a real suburban atmosphere. The Horesh school sits just at the entrance making it an ideal location for families with kids in that school. 

Yemenite Quarter

Don't let the name fool you, it is not Yemenites only! It is simply an area where new Yemenite immigrants were given to settle down when they arrived in Zichron in the 1950’s. Once a literal swampland it is now one the most desired locations in Zichron. It is a culturally diverse area, a close walk to the center of town, features a variety of Synagogues and parks, with an abundance of private free-standing homes. Officially it is part of the “moshava” and contains a lot of rich history as well. It is not uncommon to find multi-generational families residing together or in houses on connected plots of land. 


Situated on the Southwestern coast and bordering the tranquil Ramat Hanadiv nature reserve it is one of the more modern neighborhoods of Zichron. A small shopping center as well as nature trails are a hop, skip, and a jump away. The Shmura neighborhoods are some of the newest in Zichron and there is a strong feeling of community amongst its residents.

Halamot Zichron

Halomot, (The Dream of Zichron) as it is called for short, sits just on the outskirts of Zichron proper and is its own self-contained enclave, complete with parks, schools, stores, and Synagogues. For those seeking a little adventure, the Israel trail is mere meters away offering walking, running, and biking trails, plus even some areas for rock climbing! Halomot also contains a full court basketball court and a skatepark. Halomot is a mixture of apartment buildings and two-family houses. Some of the penthouses and upper floor apartments offer sweeping views of the neighboring forests and mountains. 

Neve Sharet

This is another area which sits just on the outskirts of Zichron proper. It is a completely mixed neighborhood with old-timers, newcomers, secular and religious and has a peaceful neighborhood charm all its own. There are a few small shops in the area as well as multiple health clinics. A vast majority of the area is free standing or attached houses. If you are looking for a quiet area just slightly off the beaten path, this neighborhood just might be for you!

Ramat Tzvi

This neighborhood has a large component of Haredi families but with multiple buildings undergoing the Tama-38 renovations, a variety of families from different persuasions have been moving into the outlying areas. A short walk to a local shopping center, health clinics, parks, and a multitude of Synagogues is what makes it an attractive destination. The neighborhood consists of an outer ring of apartment buildings encircling an inner ring of multi-family houses.

Western Cliff

The Mediterranean side of Zichron offers sweeping coastal views and spectacular sunsets. It is an area with mostly large private houses and breath-taking views. But like some other areas of Zichron you will need a car to get to shopping and schools. Perhaps you have heard of the luxurious Elma Hotel? It is also located in this neighborhood. The houses here tend to be more luxurious than in other areas of town and of course are priced to match. But remember, you really cannot beat those sunsets!

Neve Remez

Remez as it is referred to by the locals is a secluded area of Zichron sitting adjacent to the main road entering town coming up from Binyamina in the south. It is filled with both modern housing, some older established structures, even one house containing a barn with some horses! Remez is built around a beautiful park with a large central grassy area. With only a single road in and out, it is a particularly quiet area of Zichron with a special community feel. There are two shuls in Remez which are both exceedingly warm and welcoming, with one of them offering herring and whiskey after Shabbos morning davening.


Zamarin is an old area of town sitting just above the Carmel winery and is the original Zichron settlement. The neighborhood consists of old stone houses and narrow alleyways. The beauty of the neighborhood is that it is entirely isolated from main streets, traffic, and people, but being only a 5-minute walk from the town’s main drag.

Shchunat Yaakov

This neighborhood is literally smack dab in the middle of Zichron. It is entirely residential and comprised of stand-alone and multi-family homes. Like most areas of Zichron, shops, clinics, schools, parks, and Synagogues are all within close proximity
