Why are we called Kokia House?

History of the building

This 19th century mansion was purchased by Benjamin and Rosa Kokia. Benjamin Kokia was a member of a well-known family of Georgian roots. Rosa Kokia was the grandchild of the Sephardi Chief Rabbi of the Land of Israel – Nissin Sahul Eliashar.

The top floor hosted the clinic of the famous eye specialist, Dr. Ticho, whose hospital was in the Ticho House behind this building. Benjamin and Rosa Kokia lived here until their death in 1950s.
