The pronunciation of the Jews of Haifa.
Jews of Haifa, Tivon and Beit Shean, had a very bad accent and did not distinguish
between hei and chet, ain and aleph. Instead of pronouncing  "Velo YeCHalelu "
My Holy Name, they would say "Velo YeHalelu", "and that they praise" not My
Holy Name, instead of "and they profane not" Their priest were not allowed to
hold services and to officiate in synagogues
Zev Vilnay, Legends of Galilee
8/2010 The Association for Immigrants Absorption in Haifa has organized a
children's Summer Studio attended by about 40 children who immigrated to
Israel last year, from English-speaking countries. The children were divided into
3 groups based on their level of knowledge of Hebrewand  studied Hebrew in a
concentrated form.  Teachers and educational counselors   told the children  
about the  study  practices in schools.
Shai Fishel, director of the Association,  said he attaches great importance to
good absorption of the children who are usually an anchor for the absoption of
their parents.

There are two kinds of Ulpans,
public subsidized free Ulpan and private Ulpan.  
The Museum of the City of Haifa in cooperation with the Technion offers an exhibition to mark the 100th anniversary
of the Technion, a seminal event in Jewish cultural life in Israel  that has marked the history of the city of Haifa.
The cornerstone of the building's main Technicum - the name of the Technion in the past,  has been  laid on  April 11,
1912. The Technion institution of education and science was the first in Israel and in the Ottoman Empire which had
then no high-level technical university.
The War of languages  exhibition   tells the story of the creation of the Technion in Haifa, which lasted over 15 years
from 1908 to 1924. The struggle for language teaching: this will be  German or Hebrew? occurred during the years
1913-1914. It ended in a victory for the Hebrew language. This people's war has shaped the national identity of the
Jewish community and was a milestone in the process of creation of the new Hebrew culture.
The exhibition presents an important chapter in the construction of Israeli culture. It shows the different positions
that influence the process that led to the victory of Hebrew in the debate around the creation of the Haifa Technicum:
elaboration of the idea of a scientific institution, education in Israel by the organization Ezra that was active in
Berlin, the Zionist vision of education, the choice of  the place for building the Technicum, the concept of the
architect Alexander Baerwald, who translated the vision into architectural language,  has designed and built this
beautiful building on Mount Carmel,  the language war  and its impact on language teaching at the Technion and at
the Reali school, the transmission of the Technion to the Zionist Histadrut and the inauguration in 1924. One
language, one people, one country
