Haviva Belkind was born in Rishon Le Zion. She studied at the local elementary school ("Haviv") in the village. When she was 12 years old she was sent to her father's family in Rosh Pina and spent some time there. From then onwards, when she returned to Rishon Le Zion they began to call her Habiba, in the idiomatic nature of speech of the people of the Galilee. In Rishon Le Zion she was active in the public library when it was stored in the Community Centre (Beth Ha-Am). After she married Ishay Belkind she moved with him to Gan Hayim. When they returned to Rishon Le Zion and for the next 35 years, she worked as a ticket clerk in the family cinema "Naaman". In the family home in the Aviva district, on the outskirts of Rishon Le Zion, she took care of the trees, the flowers and the animals in the garden with great love and "everything she touched came to life" - as her sister Olga said.
