The Establishment of the Neighborhood Achuzat Bayit


The founding meeting in Tel Aviv, 1909 (PHG\1003937)"The 60 families that organized in order to establish the Ahuzat Bayit neighborhood in north Jaffa, hold a draw for the plots of land. This day is considered the day on which the neighborhood was founded, and which burgeoned, in the years to come, into the city of Tel Aviv."
