Coexistence in Jaffa

During more than 3500 years, Jaffa had the opportunity to live several lives and changes identities. The city was established as a one of the main harbors of the region and became a prominent city during the 19 and 20th centuries, with a cosmopolite population. The events related to the creation of the State of Israel greatly affected its population. The city became a symbol of the Palestinian exile as well as a place for Jewish new immigrants. Today, the city happens to be a neighborhood of Tel Aviv with the challenge of a mixed population: Jewish, Muslim, and Christian, as well as the reminiscence of its past. But above all, its charm is still around.

Our visit will cover emblematic historic sites as well as stories of people while walking around in the small streets of Jaffa. We will also speak about the city today. We may finish the visit with a meal at the home of a local family, and end our day with tasty typical dishes, right in front of the sunset.
