This settlement south of Haifa was founded in 1949 by newcomers to Israel, mostly from Czechoslovakia. They chose the name Maharal in honor of the great Torah leader of the Czech capital of Prague, MAreinu HARAv Loewe, who lived during the 16th century and left behind important works on Torah law and philosophy.
