Just arrived for a month stay, mostly in Haifa. Discovered that on Fridays starting at 1600, they have musical entertainment for Kabbalat Shabbat. It is down along the port area, in Ha Ir. There were so many pople, of all ages. Everyone dancing and singing along. Made for a wonderful experience. They even had water sprayers, to help aleviate the heat. Should you be in the Haifa area for Shabbat, you should try to take it in. Just head to Ha Ir, near the port, and you will hear the loud music. Or follow all the people walking there.
