Tel Aviv: The White City (English and German Edition)

Because of its more than 4,000 Bauhaus buildings, Tel Aviv is often called “the White City.” The city center, created in the 1930s and 1940s under the influence of international modernism, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. Photographer Stefan Boness captures the unique atmosphere of the city, juxtaposing classical modernism and contemporary architecture.

Nächstes Jahr in Tel Aviv: Ein Neueinwanderer aus Berlin in Israel- eine Biographie (German Edition)

Im Herbst des Jahres 1933 traf der rothaarige Krauskopf Henry Goldberg, ein Textilingenieur aus Leipzig, auf der Flucht vor den Nazis in Paris ein. Dort lernte er die Hebamme Elsa Cohen kennen. 1936 gewährte die britische Mandatsverwaltung Elsa und Henry, im Rahmen einer Kontingentregelung für verheiratete Paare, die Einreise nach Palästina. Nach ihrer Ankunft in Haifa mussten sie, so wie viele andere auch, noch einmal ganz von vorne anfangen. Sie mieteten sich eine Wohnung und überlegten, womit sie hier ihr Geld verdienen sollten. Die verträumte Elsa hatte schon immer eine kreative Ader gehabt und so beschlossen meine Großeltern eines Abends, ihren Lebensunterhalt als Puppenspieler zu bestreiten. Sie kauften sich einen rostigen Kleinwagen, bastelten sich Puppen aus Pappmaché und re...

A Place in History: Modernism, Tel Aviv, and the Creation of Jewish Urban Space

A Place in History is a cultural study of Tel Aviv, Israel's population center, established in 1909. It describes how a largely European Jewish immigrant society attempted to forge a home in the Mediterranean, and explores the role of memory and diaspora in the creation of a new national culture. Each chapter is devoted to a particular place in the city that has been central to its history, and includes literary, artistic, journalistic, and photographic material relating to that site. This is the first book-length study of Tel Aviv in English. It will appeal to readers interested in urban cultures, the contemporary Middle East, modern Jewish history, and Israeli literature. It also contributes to the ongoing public debate about memory, memorials and urban identity.

Carnival in Tel Aviv: Purim and the Celebration of Urban Zionism (Israel: Society, Culture, and History)

The Tel Aviv annual Purim celebrations were the largest public events in British Palestine, and they played a key role in the development of the urban Jewish experience in the Promised Land. Carnival in Tel-Aviv presents a historical-anthropological analysis of this mass public event and explores the ethnographic dimension of Zionism. This study sheds new light on the ideological world of urban Zionism, the capitalistic aspects of Zionist culture, and the urban nature of the Zionist project, which sought to create a nation of warriors and farmers, but in fact nationalized the urban space and constructed it as its main public sphere.

Traveling Israel - Jerusalem Tel Aviv and the Judaean Desert

There are many well-known travel guides available. They recommend different itineraries, accommodation and dishes, and generally provide a small amount of information about a lot of different places. My approach is different. On my website you can find all the general information you need to know about Israel (accommodation, transportation, food, society, etc.) whereas the booklets present detailed information on the sites alone. As a tour guide who has been to the sites hundreds of times I am able to relate the history of each through its artifacts and integrate into the text the answers to the most frequently asked questions.Judaean Desert bookletThis booklet takes you to the three most visited sites in the Judaean Desert: Masada, Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea.

Tel Aviv: Mythography of a City (Space, Place and Society)

Founded in 1909 as a "garden suburb" of the Mediterranean port of Jaffa, Tel Aviv soon became a model of Jewish self-rule and was celebrated as a jewel in the crown of Hebrew revival. Over time the city has transformed into a lively metropolis, renowned for its architecture and culture, openness and vitality. A young city about to celebrate its 100th anniversity, the mythic Tel Aviv continues to represent a fundamental idea that transcends the physical texture of the city and the everyday experiences of its residents. Combining historical research and cultural analysis, Maoz Azaryahu explores the different myths that have been part of the vernacular and perception of the city. He relates Tel Aviv's mythology to its physicality through buildings, streets, personal experiences, and municipal...

Young Tel Aviv: A Tale of Two Cities (The Schusterman Series in Israel Studies)

Practical Zionism in the Mandate era (1920–1948) is usually associated with agricultural settlements (kibbutzim), organized socialist workers, and the creation of a formal high culture. This book fills a gap in historical research by presenting a different type of practical Zionism in Jewish Palestine—urban, middle-class, and created by popular and informal daily practices. While research on Tel Aviv has so far been confined to “positivist” historical description or focused nostalgically on local myths, Helman’s book reconstructs and analyzes the city’s formative decades on various levels, juxtaposing historical reality with cultural images and ideological doctrines. Topics include the city’s physical portrait, major public events, consumer culture, patterns of leisure and en...
