Walking past the glass and steel multistory National Insurance Institute and the cavernous entry to the underground car parks, with the traffic roaring by on the three-lane artery to the bayside, it would be easy to miss this almost-hidden square, which is the garden entrance to House of Grace, were it not for the new blue street sign.

This little square to honor the late Kamil Shehade in downtown Haifa, dwarfed by the tall modern buildings of the law courts and the Kirya government complex, was named only this year by the Haifa Municipality. The naming of the square was a tribute to a man and his family who continue his work.
