Historical Netanya Coastal Tour

August 12-5:30 pm

Historical Netanya Coastal Tour

Monday 12 August

This tour is arranged in conjunction with the Netanya Museum. After our bus picks us up and as the day hopefully gets a little cooler, we start at Mitzpeh Hayam (Ein Hatechelet) in the north of the city. Despite considerable hardship, many kibbutzim (including Yad Mordechai) were established in this area. Our guide will tell us about the time of the British Mandate, when illegal immigrant ships tried desperately to reach the shore, helped by the daring and covert efforts of the Haganah. Our bus will continue to Kiryat Sanz and we will hear about the coastline and its nature. At the Gallery on Ma’apilim Street, we will hear a history of our city, and then on to the site of the Esther Cinema where illegal immigrants were hidden.  On Gad Machnes Street we will see the monument to the heroic event in the mandate days.

We continue south to the Harry Grintal area, named after Dr. Grintal who bought 15 dunams of land in 1936 in the then most southern part of the city. We  pass by  Yad L’Banim, dedicated in 1983 as a memorial to the fallen soldiers and citizens of Netanya.

Our tour culminates near the Winter Pond and Iris Reserve to appreciate how the city is co-operating to preserve its natural resources.

Depart: Tennis Courts 5.30pm, Yona 5.35pm, Young Israel 5.45pm
