About Tel-Aviv, The First Hebrew City:+Tel-Aviv has had three names since it was founded in 1909. During the first year it was known by the name of the founding society — Ahuzat-Bayit. From 1910-1950 it was called Tel-Aviv and since being united with Jaffa after the War of independence it has been called TeI-Aviv-Yaffo. The city’s development has been extremely rapid - it grew a hundredfold between the year 1920 and the founding of the State of Israel in 1948 (from 2,000 to more than 200,000 inhabitants) and has become the largest city in the country.+Tel-Aviv surpassed Jerusalem in 1934 and maintained its lead for more than 40 years.+Jerusalem regained its status as the larger of the two cities in the mid 1970’s. Both an open and a concealed struggle took place for many years between the rapidly growing Tel-Aviv and its parent city ofJaffa. The Jaffa Arabs attacked Tel-Aviv several times during the British Mandate and at the beginning of the war OfIndependence. However, Tel-Aviv, which is much larger than Jaffa, had the upper hand. One day before Israel’s Independence was declared In Tel-Aviv, Jaffa surrendered, and most of its Arab Inhabitants left. The ministry of interior officially merged Jaffa with Tel-aviv in October of 1950.+Tel-Aviv absorbed many new immigrants, mainly in Jaffa and transit camps in the city environs. More distant neighborhoods on the north side of the Yarkon River have been developed since the 1950’s and this area has grown immensely. Tel-Aviv is the heart of the Dan region – the most densely populated residential area in the country.+Even though it is not the country’s capital, it operates as a capital in many fields- most of the foreign embassies are situated here, it is the country’s main business center, the capital of culture, art and the press and most of the theater and entertainment world is centered in Tel – Aviv. Tel-Aviv University is the largest among Israel’s institutions of higher education.+At the start of the 21st century Tel-Aviv area measures 51 thousand dunams, it has 14 kilometers of sea shore and 2,000 streets with about 380,000 inhabitants. Double, that number of workers and visitors enter the city every day. Tel-Aviv, also known as The White City, is like a giant living museum of the 1930’s architectural style known as Bauhaus or International style. Thanks to the thousands of houses which were built in that modern style throughtout the city, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and cultural Organization (UNESCO) named Tel – Aviv a world Heritage site in 2003.
