AACI Netanya – Inside Tel Aviv   

06 December 2017 - 06 December 2017

Zeev_JabotinskyWe start our day at the Aden Jewish Heritage Museum, Neve Tzekek. The outside of the building resembles a synagogue, which indeed it was. The ground floor is now a museum dedicated to the Jewish community of the port city of Aden in Yemen. Our guide, a descendant of Adeni Jews, will explain the uniqueness of the community, its history, and its connection to the Neve Tzedek neighborhood.

Our next stop is the Jabotinsky Museum, one of the most distinctive historical museums in Tel Aviv. With the inauguration of the exhibit on The Af Al Pi Illegal Immigration to Eretz Israel, the museum embarked upon a course of harnessing state-of-the-art technology to make history come alive. Static presentations of documents and photographs have been replaced by short, dynamic multi-media presentations with vibrant special effects to enhance the total experience. We shall see two films: Jabotinsky’s life and mission and the story of the illegal immigration to Palestine by ship.

In the heart of Tel Aviv is the renovated Sarona complex, originally a German Templar Colony. On our guided tour of the Sarona Visitors Center we shall visit the secret underground tunnels that connect the Templar wineries where wine barrels were transported underground in a naturally cool environment. Some of the large underground chambers were used by the Hagana for airplane assembly, which only
increases the mystique of the area.

There will be free time to enjoy the landscaped gardens, cafes, shops and the Sarona Culinary Market.

There are several Kosher eateries at Sarona or bring your own.
