Neve Tzedek

Neve Tzedek

In the southwestern corner of Tel Aviv is Neve Tzedek, the city’s oldest neighborhood.  It was founded in 1887 by a group of Jewish families that sought to live outside overcrowded Yafo (Jaffa). While the neighborhood suffered from decades of disrepair during the mid-20th century, it has since been renovated and re-established as a fashionable area.  Now, modern constructions contrast with older buildings that have been restored.  Narrow, winding streets lined by restaurants, cafes, galleries, bars, and specialty stores give the neighborhood a quaint feeling that is sure to charm.  The Suzanne Dallal center (a famous theatre, dance, and culture center), which is surrounded by a piazza and small gardens, and Shabazi Street (where you can find cafes, artisan stores, designer items, and boutique shops) are worth checking out.

  1. Hi there – any ideas where to stay for a couple of nights in this are? Two Londoners, two teenaged kids, seeking insider tips for two nights in TA…Tx !

    • Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with hotels in that area. I can say that it’s a lovely area and its location is great. An amazing restaurant called Dallal is in that area (another one called Suzzana is across the street-I haven’t been there but it’s well known). There are also two branches of the ice cream store Anita-one is bigger than the other so try to find that one!

      You’ll be close to the beach and to HaTachana-it’s open on Shabbat and would be a nice place to check out since a lot of other places are closed and there’s no public transportation on Shabbat (if you’re renting a car that’s less relevant).

      Sorry I couldn’t help more on the hotel front but I hope the other things help make your family’s visit to Israel amazing!

      Let me know!
