He was born in 1881 to parents, Malka and Yehuda Leib, who owned estates in the Minsk region of Russia. At the age of eighteen he left the yeshiva and moved to Minsk to study at the Gymnasium. In 1912, Chaim completed his studies at the University of Berlin, where he joined the Russian army as a physician and spent three years at the front, where he settled in the city of Sarna in Volhynia where he worked in his profession and devoted himself to Zionist activities. His devotion as a doctor, his energy as a public activist and his conduct with people.
In 1921, Dr. Yizraeli immigrated to Israel with his wife and one-year-old son for a while in Petah Tikva, where he worked as a doctor in Ramle, where he worked to bring the few Jewish residents closer to the Arabs and to increase the local community.

And helped many of its Arab residents, helped the small Jewish community and participated in the establishment of a "loan and savings" in the city.
In May 1924, he moved to live with his family in Beer Tuvia, and this was where most of his medical activities were directed to the Arabs of the neighboring villages who treated him with respect and affection. In the moshava he purchased land and spent his free time in the farm, tended the barn, the garden and the yard, took his cows to the pasture in the morning and received them in the evening when they returned from the field. He also found time for public activity and was a regular member of the moshav committee.
In the riots of 1929, the Arabs of the area prepared to attack Beer Tuvya as well, and Dr. Yizraeli is the driving force behind the defense of the place, heads it, trains the residents, and strengthens and strengthens them. Between attack and attack he continued to treat Arab patients. On September 25, 1929, the attacks continued throughout the day and at night, and the defenders, again under his command, repulsed the attack. During the attack he was shot and killed on the spot. He was laid to rest in the cemetery of the Beer Tuvia settlement.
His name was commemorated in the Yizkor Book in 1929 and in the Jabotinsky Institute Yizkor Book.
