Hecht Museum, University of Haifa, Haifa District, Israel

Reuben and Edith Hecht for a period of sixty years assiduously collected archaeological artifacts representing the material culture of the Land of Israel in ancient times today on dispaly in The Reuben and Edith Hecht Museum

He took special interest in finds from the Canaanite period to the end of the Byzantine period, a time of great significance for the Jewish people. Dr. Hecht, who was known for his Zionist activities, believed that archaeology was an important expression of Zionism and that the discovery of ancient artifacts was proof of the link between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.
