Tel Aviv is the second most populous city in Israel, with a population of 404,400. The city is situated on the Israeli Mediterranean coastline. Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 on the outskirts of the ancient port city of Jaffa. Tel Aviv and Jaffa were merged into a single municipality in 1950, two years after the establishment of the State of Israel.
Tel Aviv's White City, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003, comprises the world's largest concentration of Bauhaus buildings. Known as "The City That Never Sleeps", its beaches, parks, bars, cafés, restaurants, shopping, cosmopolitan lifestyle and 24-hour culture have made it a popular destination, visited by over 1.6 million foreign tourists annually.
Tel Aviv University
Located in Israel's cultural, financial and industrial heartland in northern Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv University is the largest university in Israel and the biggest Jewish university in the world.
It is a major center of teaching and research, comprising nine faculties, 106 departments, and 90 research institutes. Its origins go back to 1956, when three small education units - The Tel Aviv School of Law and Economics, an Institute of Natural Sciences, and an Institute of Jewish Studies - joined together to form the University of Tel Aviv.
In addition to its basic functions of research and teaching, Tel Aviv University contributes its expertise to the welfare of society at large; plays a part in all aspects of national life; and addresses regional and international issues. Faculty members serve in the Knesset and the Cabinet, in government agencies, and in professional organizations and public bodies. Students are encouraged to tutor disadvantaged children, volunteer services to the elderly, and aid the community through a broad range of social involvement programs.
