Netanya is a coastal city approximately 19 miles north of Tel Aviv. Its beautiful beaches have made it a popular tourist resort. Indeed, the city seeks to become a major hub for both local and overseas tourism, with an “Israeli Riviera” feel. In 2019, Netanya had a population of 221,353, making it the seventh-largest city in Israel. An additional 150,000 people live within six miles of the city.
Quote: “On December 14, 1928 a team led by Moshe Shaked began digging for water at the site. After water was discovered in February 1929, the first five settlers moved onto the land. In the weeks that followed, more settlers began arriving. Development was set back due to the 1929 Palestine riots and massacre of Jews. By September, however, development was back on track with the cornerstones for the first 10 houses being laid on Sukkot.”
