Friday, May 27th, 17:30  
House for reservation
A tour with the architect and Jaffa historian, Shmuel Giller, who will recount the story of this Jewish neighborhood in Jaffa that was founded in 1888. Unlike nearby and overcrowded Neve Tzedek, the homes in Yafe Nof had ample space between them as well as large courtyards. The neighborhood had a hospital, public baths and hot springs, and a number of hotels. The Bella Vista Hotel that was built in Yafe Nof in 1904 was the most elegant in the country and hosted tourists and affluent locals who came to enjoy the hot springs, play billiards and listen to concerts on the hotel`s balcony that overlooked the Mediterranean. The hotel, together with the entire neighborhood, was destroyed during the War of Independence, and their ruins became the foundation on which Charles Clore Park was later established. The tour will next end to Goldman`s Court.

An open house at an impressive and highly important historic building in Jaffa. It once housed the offices of Anglo-Palestine Bank (APB) that helped finance the first 60 buildings erected in Ahuzat Bayit – which was subsequently renamed Tel Aviv. This branch of APB, which later became Bank Leumi, was built at the end of the 19th century when people and businesses began venturing outside the walls of the Jaffa`s Old City. It was part of a row of buildings that were constructed near the Old City wall and moat, originally designed as a residence whose large central space and style were common in other upscale homes in the area. After it became a bank branch, the building was decorated with frescos, marble floors and elegantly crafted carpentry. The preservation works at the site have included the refurbishment of the top floor and its facades, as well as the restoration of the front balcony, the stone decorations, and the intricate carpentry works in the building.
