Many would say it is hard to find English-speakers in Haifa – that although one
can hear English spoken occasionally in public, it does not happen often. So it
may come as a surprise that there are over 700 members of the “Haifa Young
English Speakers” Facebook group."At an HYES pub night recently – an event held once or twice a month – several dozen people crowded into the dimly lit, cozy student bar and restaurant Nola Socks, located near the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology." It was a diverse and well educated group. Many
studied at the Technion.
