"How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel!"
Hadera is located a few kilometers from the coast, halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa.
One third of the population of the city are immigrants from the CIS countries who came during the last aliyah in the early 90s.
Hadera was founded by members of the organization "Hovevei Zion" in 1891. They began by draining the marshes. In the early years, many died of malaria.
In 1895, Edmond James de Rothschild allocated funds for draining the marshes on the site of the settlement and for planting eucalyptus groves.
In 1936, Hadera received the status of a city.
In 1982, a power plant was built in the city. In Hadera there is a large industrial zone.
The hospital "Hillel Yaffe" is located in the city.
