017 The Metamorphosis of a Building

12 HaTzorfim St., Old Jaffa.

A glimpse of a Jaffa stone building with vaulted ceilings, which dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. It was part of the Beit Kandinof commercial complex that consisted of 28 shops on the ground floor and five liwan apartments (that surrounded a large inner space) on the second floor, with arched windows and a balcony. The building was built by Joseph Bey Kandinof, one of the wealthiest members of the Bukharan community, who came to live in Jaffa in the early 20th century. It currently houses iota – a nonprofit organization that runs a social project for women who design and make hand-stitched products.
