Located on the coast, Haifa is a large, pluralistic, and multicultural city. While it is an economic center, Haifa offers a relaxed and unhurried lifestyle, a rich cultural life, and resources for all ages.

Haifa is friendly to Olim. It is home to a veteran English-speaking community as well as the largest number of Russian immigrants proportionate to its size. There is a small but steady stream of English speaking Olim and many services are available for new immigrants through the municipality and the Ministry of Absorption. The Kiryat Yam Sapir Absorption Center is located close by.
