Kerem MaHaRaLMoreinu Harav Livo

Near the Carmel Coast is this settlement named for the great Torah philosopher and author, Rabbi Livo of Prague.

Although there are some doubts about the authenticity of the legends of the "golem" which he is reputed to have created to protect his people from hostile anti-Semites, the MaHaRaL occupies a very special place in Jewish history thanks to the much studied volumes of Torah thought which he authored.
