Yefet, Tel Aviv, Israël

Old Jaffa Israel
a Must-See when you visit Tel Aviv
Jaffa Israel with its unique, old-world atmosphere is completely different than the rest ‎of Tel Aviv. It's a wonderful place to visit, day or night. ‎

‎11‎
You will love wandering around Jaffa's winding alleyways interspersed with art ‎galleries, historic stone buildings, mosques and churches, the Jaffa Flea Market (Shuk ‎Hapishpishim) and the Jaffa Port.‎
Jaffa Israel is an Ancient City
Jaffa, or Yafo in Hebrew, is one of Israel's most ancient cities, inhabited 7,500 years ‎ago! ‎
Can you guess what Biblical figure Jaffa it is named after?‎
Hint – it sounds like ‘Jaffa'… Legend has it that the city was named in honor of its ‎original founder, Japhet - one of Noah's 3 sons who founded the city after escaping ‎from the flood.‎
Jaffa is one of the most ancient port cities in the world. Perched on top of a hill ‎overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with a natural harbor and and fertile soil, ancient ‎Jaffa was a strategic prize.‎
It was conquered and reconquered countless times by Canaanites, Phoenicians, the ‎Pharaohs, King David, the Assyrians and more.‎
Jaffa Port

The ancient Jaffa Port is still an active fishing port. Stroll or bike around and discover ‎its unique mix of old and new. ‎
________________________________________
Along Yefet Street in Jaffa Israel

The Jaffa Watchtower - on the northern corner of Yefet and Raziel Streets is a Tel Aviv ‎icon. You can climb from within. It was built in 1906 in honor of the Turkish Sultan Al-‎Hamid's 25th year in power. ‎
Since antiquity, ancient Jaffa was surrounded by city walls which were closed at ‎sundown for protection. Yefet Sreet was built along the eastern wall of the city.‎
You can see remnants of the city walls as you walk. The city walls were continually ‎destroyed and rebuilt by the different rulers of Israel and Jaffa until an earthquake in ‎‎1836 destroyed most of the walls, which were never rebuilt.‎

Abulafiya's Bakery at 7 Yefet Street - is Tel Aviv's landmark Arabic bakery since 1879!‎

You may have to wait in line, but it's worth the wait…‎
Try the traditional Arabic pastries.‎
There is something for everyone. Plain, freshly baked pita bread and Arabic ‘bagels', ‎sweet Arabic pastries like baklava and knafeh... or my favorite - salty cheese and ‎spinach sambusak stuffed with ahardboiled egg. It's a meal on its own and delicious!‎
Telavivians flock here in droves. ‎

The Jaffa Mosque and the Fountain, on Russlan Street, after you turn right from Yefet ‎St.‎

If it is open, do visit the attractive prayer rooms and courtyard inside of the Great Jaffa ‎Mosque, or Mahmoudia Mosque. It was restored in 1820 by Mahmoud Abu-Nabut, the ‎local Ottoman ruler who rebuilt Jaffa that we see today after Napoleon destroyed the ‎city.‎
Across the street are the remains of the great fountain or ‘Sabil' that was used to ‎quench the thirst of travelers and camel caravans.‎
‎“Nabut' means club. Abu Nabut was known for ruling Jaffa with an ‘iron fist' and ‎literally clubbing people that annoyed him!‎

________________________________________
Jaffa Hilltop and Garden Peak Park (Gan HaPisga)‎

The Jaffa Park is on the hilltop is where the ancient city of Jaffa in Israel was located.‎
Kids will enjoy the iron cannons left from when Napoleon conquered Jaffa in 1799.‎
All along the hilltop are archeological ruins of ancient Jaffa as far back Egyptian ‎remains from 3500 years.Walk among the park and gardens amid the archaeological ‎remains which are all marked with descriptions in English.‎
On a clear day, from Gan HaPisga (Peak Garden), you can see all of Tel Aviv, almost ‎as far as to Haifa in the north.‎


Looking straight out to the Sea right beyond Jaffa Port, you can see Andromeda's ‎Rocks. According to Greek mythology, the hero Perseus on his winged horse saved the ‎King's daughter Andromeda from a sea -monstor on these very same rocks.‎
Kids will also enjoy the Wishing Bridge, between the Jaffa hilltop and Kedumim ‎Square.‎

At the entrance to the bridge is a beautiful stone mosaic depicting the 12 astrological ‎signs. The bridge is built at the location of an old fountain that was considered a ‎wishing well according to local legend. If you hold on your zodiac sign and make a ‎wish, it is supposed to come true.‎
Just nearby is the Zodiac Fountain - the sculpture was designed by Jaffa artists.‎
On the hilltop is a beautiful white statue sculpted resembling a gate. This Daniel Kafri ‎gateway sculpture portrays 3 biblical stories about God promising the land of Israel to ‎Abraham and Isaac, to Jacob and to Joshua.‎

Jaffa Israel - Winding Streets and Alleyways

When you stroll around Jaffa - do get off on the main streets!‎
Part of the fun of old Jaffa Israel is exploring its winding streets and alleyways.‎
Just near the Mahmoudia Mosque is Alley 3029 which turns into Money Changers' ‎Alley (Simtat HaHalfanim). Rumor has it that the sailors from all over the world who ‎arrived at Jaffa Port changed their money here to pay for the prostitutes who serviced ‎the sailors.‎
Just below is a signpost for an alleyway called Mazal Keshet - or Sagittarius Alleyway.‎

This is one of the 12 alleyways leading from Kedumim Square to the Jaffa Port. Each ‎one is named for the signs of the Zodiac.‎
Today, some of Israel's leading artists live in these alleys and you can browse the many ‎art galleries.‎
________________________________________
Jaffa Flea Market – Shuk Hapishpishim


Shuk Hapishpishim is an outdoor flea market in Jaffa Israel. It's open all week, except ‎Saturdays and public holidays.‎
The Jaffa Flea market has become quite trendy and is full of bars, restaurants and ‎boutique art galleries.‎
Thursday evenings between May and October is the perfect time to visit. The streets, ‎eateries and local bars in the area are packed with Israelis and tourists having a good ‎time. Don't be surprised to see lots of families and kids too. During summer vacations, ‎Israeli parents allow their kids go to sleep very late!‎
During the day, you can browse around, trying on new or second hand clothes, ‎furniture and trinkets. While you shop, you can have a snack at one of the local eateries ‎and don't forget to people watch!‎
The flea market is a good place to buy interesting and cheap souvenirs and gifts. ‎

Christian Churches and Icons in Jaffa Israel
Christian Pilgrims have come to Jaffa for thousands of years.‎

St. Peters Franciscan Church commemorates St. Peter's stay in Jaffa and the miracle ‎he wrought in the house of Simon.‎
The interior of the Franciscan Church is quite beautiful.‎
The church bell tower overlooks the sea and is an icon of Jaffa Israel. ‎
Like in Jaffa and all over Israel, the church is built on top of layers of former churches. ‎The original Byzantine church was built in the 7th century, rebuilt by Lthe Crusaders in ‎the 1200s, destroyed by the Turkish Mamluks, and so on… The current structure was ‎rebuilt in 1888.‎
The Franciscan Church of St. Peter is open every day, Monday to Saturday from 8 AM ‎to 11:45 AM and 3 – 5 PM and on Sundays from 3 to 7 PM.‎

You can also explore the Armenian St. Nicholas Monastary in Netiv Hamazalot Alley, ‎which you can reach from Jaffa Port, just west of St Peter Church.‎

Armenians believe that this is the home of Simon the Tanner from the New Testament.‎

‎ ‎
Jaffa (also known as Yafo) is the ancient port city out of which Tel Aviv has now ‎grown. Jaffa has, in recent years, like much of South Tel Aviv, been regenerated with ‎the old narrow streets and courtyards becoming a another highly desirable part of Tel ‎Aviv's urban tapestry. Jaffa flea market is a well known attraction of the area, with ‎vendors selling a diverse range of interesting and unique products. Meanwhile the ‎narrow passageways and ancient buildings in the Old City of Jaffa are worlds away ‎from modern Tel Aviv.‎

Jaffa's beautiful harbor
History of Jaffa
The history of Jaffa is a long one. As of the world's oldest ports, Jaffa is thought to have ‎been the port from which Jonah left in the story of the Whale! The port continued to be ‎important through history, and served as the main entry point to the land of Israel ‎through until the late 19th century when Jews from around the world began to return to ‎Israel. It was through Jaffa that they entered the country and in Jaffa that ‎many initially settled. The huge population increase led to overcrowding, and tense ‎relations developed between the Jewish and Arab residents of the city. The result was ‎that Jews began building outside of Jaffa, firstly neighborhoods such as Neve Tzedek, ‎and later the city of Tel Aviv.‎
As Tel Aviv developed, Jaffa decayed. By the 1940's Tel Aviv was so much larger than ‎Jaffa, then dominantly Arab as most Jews had moved out, that it was made into a ‎neighborhood of Tel Aviv to create the official title of the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo. The ‎decay continued until the municipality created a Development Organization to oversee ‎the restoration of Jaffa, which continues today. In late 2011, a new Old Jaffa Visitors ‎Center opened to the public and this features multimedia displays depicting Jaffa ‎through the ages, as well as self-guided walking tours of the city as it is today.‎

Jaffa is full of interesting faces and places ‎

Old Jaffa
Things to do in Jaffa
There are lots of great things to see in Jaffa. Since its restoration, it has become a ‎popular tourist attraction, with people visiting it as a part of Tel Aviv, and as a city of ‎interest on its own. Jaffa is a real melting pot with Jewish and Arab populations living ‎and breathing the same closely-packed air. It always feels like Jaffa is in a constant ‎state of flux as people rush about on their daily business. The Flea Market is a key site, ‎and the sites, sounds, and smells of the small alleyways and streets which make up this ‎city are lined with artists galleries and studios, as well as boutique and craft shops. ‎Jaffa also has some unique and interesting restaurants.‎
The Jaffa Port is still being excavated, but has transformed into a unique destination, ‎still used by fishermen, yet hosting a great array of cafes and restaurants, as well as ‎the Jaffa Port Market. The views from here across to modern Tel Aviv, especially at ‎sunset are incredible. Meanwhile, the gardens next to the sea are picturesque.‎



Tel Aviv, as seen from Jaffa; ‎
Shops in Jaffa are unique. The small, narrow streets are home to small unique ‎boutiques, design shops and other fascinating shops which you could even think are not ‎shops.‎
Restaurants and cafes in Jaffa offer the full range of food that Tel Aviv has become ‎known for although there is a wide range of more oriental and Middle Eastern styles of ‎food. For instance, one local institution Dr Shakshuka serves this unique tomato and ‎egg based dish originating from Libya to crowds of natives and tourists alike.‎
What's near to Jaffa: HaTachana, Tel Aviv's Old Railway station is a short stroll up ‎the the Mediterranean Coast. Meanwhile the neighborhood of Florentinoffers one the ‎chance to see the ‘old' South Tel Aviv – still to be regenerated with a fascinating array ‎of shops selling all varieties of products. And, of course, there are many other ‎great things to do in Tel Aviv.‎
