Remembering the Baron

de baron rotchshield

This month we commemorated 84 years since the death of Baron Rothschild. His crypt, located at the heart of Ramat Hanadiv Gardens, is a living memorial to his heritage.

Baron Edmond de Rothschild (1845-1934) was a major figure in the establishment of the modern State of Israel.  Supporting the Yishuv (the pre-State Jewish community in the land of Israel) became his life’s work and endured for many decades.

He acquired large tracts of land and sent expert agronomists from Europe to help the pioneering farmers. Forty-four villages were established with the support of the Baron and his descendants; among them are those that bear the names of Rothschild family members: Zikhron Ya’akov, named after the Baron’s father; Givat Ada, in honour of his wife Adelaide; and Binyamina ¬ a tribute to the Baron himself.

In addition to supporting agricultural enterprises, the Baron left his indelible mark on the health, educational, and religious sectors of the Yishuv, and on its early industrial development, establishing the first wineries and power plants in his effort to guide the Jewish community towards independence.

The Baron’s death in 1934 at the age of 89 marked the end of a long and full life. Some 20 years after his death, on 6 April 1954, his remains and those of his wife Adelaide were brought to Israel and re-interred at Ramat Hanadiv in a state ceremony with full honours.
