Places to visit in Tel Aviv-Yafo. Languages: ru, en

The Ezel Museum is named after Amihai Feglin. He is also known as Beth Gidi, and it contains exhibits and documents telling about the history of Irgun (ECEL - Irgun Zwai Leumi - the national military organization), starting with the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on the division of Palestine on November 29, 1947. Partition of Palestine was supposed to happen after the expiration of the British Mandate in 1948, on British territory, which England gained after the First World War. Mandated territory was to include the territory of two states: the Jewish state of Israel and the Arab state of Palestine. The Jewish leadership and the Jewish population of the mandated English Palestine were enthusiastically preparing for the creation of two states, while the Arab population categorically opposed the creation of a Jewish state. In conjunction with this, back in 1936, the Arabs of British Palestine launched a large anti-English uprising lasting 3 years, until, with the outbreak of World War II in 1939, the British brutally crushed this uprising. With the UN decision of November 1947, the confrontation between Jews and Arabs intensified and led to an actual civilian outbreak, which the British did not want to intervene, realizing that they were withdrawing their troops and ceasing their presence in Palestine in the spring of 1948. One of the most fierce battles was the battle between Jewish Tel Aviv and Arab Jaffa. EZEL’s soldiers were stationed by the Jewish leadership at the junction of Tel Aviv and Jaffa and took the brunt of the street battles of 1948 (April 25-28, 1948). The museum building is actually one of the houses of the Manshi district, which were almost completely destroyed in the battle for sovereignty between Jaffa and Tel Aviv.

Tel Aviv from its beginning back to Jaffa

One of the most interesting pages in the history of Tel Aviv and Jaffa is the relationship of cities throughout the twentieth century. Jaffa has been a large port city for centuries, and Tel Aviv was only conceived in 1909. The first railway in Palestine was built between Jaffa and Jerusalem when Tel Aviv was not yet there. The Manshia quarter - at the junction of Jaffa and Tel Aviv - ceased to exist during the war for the Independence of Israel. Jaffa became part of the booming Tel Aviv, but retained its identity. All these stories will be told by the route from Mitham aTahan - the old railway station, across the Manshia embankment to ancient Jaffa to the top of the hill of Abrashi Park, where today the most beautiful and most famous view of Tel Aviv and Jaffa opens.
