Follow Israel Radio on
Where can you find the settlement of Ahuzat Bayit in Israel today? When was it established? It was established 102 years ago, but re-named to Tel-Aviv the following year.
Tel-Aviv was built on sand dunes, but turned into a metropolis and the center of an entire metropolitan area.
Named after Theodor Herzl`s "Altneuland " it became a "new Jewish " city, and a city with many faces.
Learn about the establishment of Tel-Aviv, and the reason for its name. Learn about the religious communities in this so-called secular city. Become familiar with the cultural differences between north and south Tel-Aviv. Explore the most wanted areas and the less fortunate areas. Find the answer to why so many skyscrapers are being built today in the city.
Many people love Tel-Aviv and many do not. But get to know it a bit, it`s for sure worthwhile!
