Rishon LeZion

Rishon LeZion coat of armsAbout Rishon LeZion

Only 10 miles south of Tel Aviv you will discover a vibrant and ever-growing community - the city of Rishon LeZion, lying on the beautiful shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea. From its early days as the first settlement established by the new immigrants of the first Aliyah back in the late 1800s until our time, the city has rapidly grown to be the fourth largest city in Israel and a metropolitan center of the area.

Rishon LeZion offers an urban lifestyle with plenty of shopping centers, restaurants and bars, parks and of course the beach, while still maintaining a strong sense of community with its special mix of different populations – sabras (native Israelis), new immigrants from Ethiopia and the Former Soviet Union and more.

Masa Israel Teaching Fellows with Israel Experience participants in Rishon LeZion will enjoy living in the center of town, in apartment buildings located no more than a short walking distance from one another, which are close to the central streets of the city offering great restaurants, cafes and shops, as well as convenient public transportation to Tel Aviv.
