Haim Pohatchevsky was born in Brisk de Litha. He came to Rishon Le Zion in the wake of his brother Michal and lived here during the first decade of the 20th century. Here four of his children were born.
He worked as a cooper in the winery and later, on account of the malaria which attached members of his family, moved to Beirut and lived in Zachle in the Lebanese valley. Haim worked in the Carmel Oriental which imported wines from Rishon Le Zion. Later he opened a hotel which was a meeting place for people from Eretz Israel when they came to Beirut.
Years later the family returned to Eretz Israel and lived in Tel Aviv.
Here too they opened a hotel.
When Haim died he was brought for burial in the old cemetery in Rishon Le Zion.
