A History of Strength, Resilience and Restoration in Neve Tzedek

Neve Tzedek has an intriguing and inspiring history, and that history is visible today as one walks through the streets. Built in 1887, as part of the ‘new’ Tel Aviv, Neve Tzedek was left to decline, with buildings and antique roadways simply crumbling away, until the 1980’s when renewed investment of spirit and effort helped to transform the village and restore its former grandeur. Today, some of the original buildings, expertly restored, provide a focal point for local celebrations and tourism. You can stand on the rooftop of the Chlouche House, the first house built in Tel Aviv, and enjoy the ocean breeze. Explore the outdoor gardens on the patios of the gracious theater, the Suzanne Dellal Center.
