Tel Aviv - Modern Heart of Israel

Positioning itself as the vibrant counterpoint to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv styles itself as the “city that never sleeps.” Discover why it stands as the immersive, all-embracing, modern and postmodern heart of Israel.


Taking a walk along Rothschild Boulevard today, it is hard to imagine the modest beginnings of the street. It was here where the first water well was dug just over 100 years ago, a time when barely 66 Jewish families gathered on a desolate sand dune and marked the land with white and grey sea shells. Nowadays, surrounded by fancy restaurants, sweaty workers, bohemian artists, artisans’ studios and looming high rises, this city is an enticing mix of history, religion and culture. Tel Aviv is also known as the ‘white city’, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2003, and is home to the largest concentration of Bauhaus buildings (no less than 4000!) in the world.



Although most known for its secular lifestyle, synagogues in this Jewish city are reflective of the great diversity and pluralism in the city:  Yemenite Jews pray in “Kerem Hateimanim,”  the Libyan Synagogue in Old Jaffa; the Masorti community are to be found in “NeveShechter,” and the reform synagogue  is “Beit Daniel” or the imposing “Great Synagogue.” Let us offer you a unique experience exploring all of Tel Aviv’s exciting historical and contemporary sites!
