A walk through Tel Aviv: A city of many neighborhoods…

Bauhaus Style Building

Tel Aviv…

Tel Aviv is by far the most modern of all the cities in Israel. But, it is also able to maintain it’s old world charm as well (okay so it’s not thaaaat old). Whenever we walk through the city there is always something new to see and shoot.

Hassan Bek Mosque…


The Hassan Bek Mosque is considered to be one of the most well-known mosques  located in the Jaffa neighborhood, which is now part of  Tel Aviv. It has long history of  controversy. The mosque was built in 1916. The unique  style architecture it displays is in sharp contrast with the   modern high-rises and hotels that are in the surrounding area. It is located near the Mediterranean Sea across the road from the Tel Aviv beach area. The mosque was open to the general public but at the time we visited there were no sightseers, just a few men who were there for silent prayer and contemplation.

There’s always something new to see in Tel Aviv. Here are some of the things we saw:

Surf Club

Everything for the best dressed in Tel Aviv

Singing on Nahalat Benjamin

Druze women making laffa

  1. I’m hoping that someday in the not too distant future, you will be our tour guides in Israel. Glad you’re coming home; can’t wait to see you both.

    Love, Helene
