The Nalaga'at ("please touch" in Hebrew) nonprofit center is a stage for arts and culture that promotes an equal dialogue and leads to social change, with the belief in the human spirit and its ability to touch and to make a difference. The center is home for: - Nalaga'at Theater - home to the only deaf-blind theater groups in the world. - Blackout Restaurant - where blind and visually impaired waiters accompany the guests to a meal in total darkness. - Kapish Event Center - where deaf and hearing impaired waiters invite the guests to communicate in sign language. - Workshop Center - glimpses to the world of deaf and blind people through once in a lifetime experiences.
To balance the many excellent reviews of the dinner and/or play experience posted here, I'd like to add that Na L'gaat ("Please Touch") also offers workshops. This was our first activity after our group of 30 arrived in Israel. We drove straight to Na L'gaat...MoreHello, We are glad to hear that your group had a positive and meaningful experience in our workshop center. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. Thank you, Jonathan

This is a historic part of town. Good walking, historic sights, views of the ocean and history. We did have a guide who made sure we saw everything and explained history and culture, which helped put everything into perspective.

This is a nicely done pedestrianised walkway from Tel Aviv to Old Jaffa and vice versa. It goes from old Jaffa Port all the way almost to the new Tel Aviv Marina. It's really nice to walk along the beach and away fro the traffic. All the while giving picturesque views of the beach, the sea and both Jaffa and Tel Aviv.
The Etzel House museum is also based in the park.

When you come through the passage between two buildings it's disconcerting to see an orange tree, and its tidy root ball, floating. You might want to walk around it quickly and take any photos because this is a popular work of art and tour groups gather around and stay until everyone has the photos they want.

"Joseph Bau House" is an authentic artist workshop that conveys to the visitor the amazing life story of Joseph Bau reflected in the wide range of his creativity, which includes movies, animation, paintings, graphics, literature and research of the Hebrew language - all spiced with special humor stemming from his optimistic view of life. Rebecca and Joseph Bau are the original couple whose wedding is shown in the movie "Schindler's List". Visits may be made only by appointment. Please call.
What an incredible place. Joseph Bau's daughters spoke with us, and it was fascinating and moving. We highly recommend this tiny museum for families - our children really paid attention and learned so much. This museum, and Mr. Bau's daughters, are a national treasure.thank you so much!!! we enjoyed your visit!

As a port of entry, the Jaffa port has seen better days - many of them. This is rumoured to be the oldest functioning port in the world.

Interactive history museum by appointment only.
This is not a museum with artifacts but rather a movie that is shown over several intricately created sets through which the visitor walks. The dialogue of the movie is entirely in Hebrew and they provide a handheld radio that gives a "gist" translation - not word for word but rather a synopsis of what the characters were saying, which was frustrating because a lot of the meaning was lost. But the production qualities were good, the sets were intricate and authentic, and I learned some things about the Palmach. I was hoping for more a rigorous academic look at its history so I had the wrong expectation. If you want to see artifacts and read a lot more about the history of the Haganah and Palmach I suggest the Haganah museum in southern tel aviv.

This is the paved beachside walkway which provides a 2km path between Tel Aviv and Jaffa.
With the Mediterranean on one side and the high rises on the other the Tayelet is one of the most beautiful walks you can take. It goes from the port of Jaffa all the way to and past the Yarkon river in the north of Tel Aviv and the sightseeing and people watching is fantastic.

Ilan Adar's Art studio- Located in the Center of old jaffa, Considered the focal point of Old Jaffa, this central square features a visitor's center containing ancient relics from local excavations. one of the most amazing Sea View you can get. while visiting the Studio you can see the Artist in Action, Must see.
This largish public square in in the Old Jaffa. Around it are some of the main attractions of old Jaffa such as St Peter's Church, Abrasha Park, Wishing Gate Ramese III gate. There's isn't actually much on the square itself except for a few cafes and restaurants and maybe some arts and crafts stalls.
It's okay. Nothing amazing.

The Yitzhak Rabin Center is the official memorial dedicated to the legacy of the late Israeli Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin. This must-see destination in Tel Aviv includes one of Israel’s newest museums, the state-of-the-art Israeli Museum, which is the only one of its kind in the country that explores the history and development of the modern democratic State using the biography of Yitzhak Rabin as a connecting thread. The compelling story of the modern state of Israel, the life of Yitzhak Rabin, along with internationally acclaimed architecture and breathtaking panoramic views of the city from its terraces, make the Yitzhak Rabin Center a must see destination for anyone visiting Israel. It can’t be missed! Tours are offered in English, Hebrew, Arabic, French, Spanish and Russian.
Really amazed at the modern amenities in this museum. As you walk around with ear phones on the museum tells its story to you. Doesn't matter if you follow in order or not. Of course viewing the museum chronologically is highly recommended but if it is crowded missing one alcove area wont ruin the experience. You could spend a long time in this museum if you listen and read everything. Great sense of the man and the history of the state of Israel.
