New Residents

Tel Aviv-Yafo is perhaps best known as a Global City. A Startup City. The Nonstop City.
Tel Aviv-Yafo is Israel's financial and cultural center. An international hub of art and creativity, of commerce and trade, of media and academia. It is a city that celebrates pluralism and tolerance, warmly embracing the many communities that compose its unique human mosaic.
However, for us at the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, and the over 400,000 residents, Tel Aviv is just home, community and family.
The city offers a thriving educational system, community and cultural activities: libraries on the boulevard, matkot on the beach, yoga in the plaza, bubbles in a theatre forum and more.
Tel Aviv-Yafo was and continues to be a gateway for Aliyah for Jews from four corners of the earth. In the recent decade, the numbers of Olim has reached new levels. 

Olim that have chosen Tel Aviv-Yafo to build their future.

We are happy to welcome to your home!
