The Fabrics Story on the Other Side of the Ayalon
Meeting place: Beit HaShiryon, 51 Lohamei Galipoli St., Yad Eliyahu
Saturday, May 20th, 10:00  
Yad Eliyahu, the city`s largest residential neighborhood, is a `living museum` of modernist planning approaches to residential living, in addition to being a pleasant habitat loved by the people who live there. Those very same reasons explain why its current development process is raising questions about the desired planning approach that will best suit the environment and respect the qualities of the neighborhood.
The two-hour tour will be led by the architect Eyal Ronen from the Eastern Planning Team at the Tel-Aviv-Yafo Municipality, and the architect Itai Horowitz, a resident of the neighborhood and a member of the Yad Eliyahu Forum - A Community Creating Reality. They will discuss the new planning ideas for urban renewal in Yad Eliyahu which are presently under review.
Open tour. Reservations not required.

A Model Tenement
26 Wingate St., 2nd floor, Yad Eliyahu
Saturday, May 20th, 11:00-1400  
Inaccessabile Tour
Architect: Tzeela Zuaretz, 2008
A visit at a tenement building apartment that was built in 1949 for Jewish soldiers who served in the British Brigade (which was part of a large-scale project carried out by the Engineering Department at the Tel Aviv Municipality, headed by the engineer, Yaakov Ben Sira). The apartment was remodeled by the architect Tzeela Zuaretz in 2008, adapting it to the needs of her family. The modest renovation relied on the original blueprint and highlights the authentic qualities of the apartment. Most of the tenements were hastily built for the new immigrants who came to Israel in large numbers after the country`s establishment in 1948. The renovation illustrates how easy it is to convert small and unassuming tenement apartments into apartments that are pleasant to live in even 65 years later.

A visit at a building that was constructed at the end of the 19th century and was later enlarged in the beginning of the 20th century by Franz Lorenz – a member of the Templer community who settled in Jaffa in 1870. For a number of decades, from 1909 to the middle of the 20th century, it functioned as a restaurant and a cultural and social center, housing the popular Café Lorenz on the ground floor and a banquet hall on the second floor (which subsequently became the Kesem movie theater). The building – which was made of local sandstone and Marseille shingles - was one of the first in the city to have electric lighting powered by a generator. It recently underwent renovation and restoration that were completed in 2012. The building is now home to the Neve Schechter Legacy Heritage Center for Jewish Culture. Two exhibitions are currently on display there: "Restless" – a solo exhibition by the artist Shy Abady, and a multidisciplinary exhibition by the Midrash Yotzer group.
Short guided tours dealing with the history of the building and the activities it offers will leave from the front gate every hour on the hour.

A visit at this synagogue, which was designed by Magidovich for the Aden Jewish community (a former British Crown Colony in South Yemen).

The ground floor of the building now houses the Aden Community Heritage House, which features a permanent exhibit of original photographs, artifacts, books, clothing and rare documents that tell the story of the Jewish community in Aden.
The tours will be led by the historian and member of the community, Danny Goldschmidt, whose great-great grandfather purchased the lot in the 1920`s in order to build the synagogue.
