LISTEN TO: Sunset in Jaffa by Yossi Gamzo
The moon rises above the mosques... the Jasmine bush gives its scent... and again, we are here, in front of the clock... again, girl, without 'why,' my hand holds yours... The seagulls flew from the dock and the sea is quiet with no sound. This is Jaffa, girl, this is Jaffa. That penetrates to the blood like a wine.
The New Tel-Aviv Museum of Art
The New Tel Aviv Museum of Art
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is Israel’s largest art museum, with a large collection of permanent exhibits as well as temporary exhibits. The Museum opened in 1932, before even the state of Israel was established, and a new wing opened in 2011. The museum shows the works of both Israeli and international artists including impressionism and post-
impressionism. Permanently on display include the works of Cezanne, Chagall, Dali, Monet, Henri Moore, Auguste Rodin, Archipenko, Picasso,
Klimt, and Kadinsky. If you want to go to just one traditional art museum when in Israel, make it this one!
Sarona is a newly renovated complex in the heart of Tel Aviv. Originally a German Templar Colony, the site sits at the heart of what is a new central business district of the city. Offices and apartments surround this beautifully landscaped complex, in which 33 original Templar buildings dating up to more than 140 years have been painstakingly restored, and today house boutique stores, artist galleries, quaint cafes, and some of the city’s hottest restaurants and bars. Opened in early 2014, Sarona has quickly gained a reputation as one of Tel Aviv’s most popular spots.
In between Kaplan and HaArba Streets.
Thousands of years of history come together in Jaffa, one of the world’s oldest cities and the birthplace of Tel Aviv.
