AACI Walking Tour in Sarona
Monday, 20th July at 6.30pm (Registration deadline date: 16th July)
Join our tour, we will follow the footsteps of the German pioneers, learn about their life and achievements, visit a restored olive press, and will make ourselves at home in the renewed SARONA – the new beating heart of the sleepless metropolis.
The Templer settlement of Sarona was one of the first modern agricultural settlements in Palestine and became a model for the Jewish pioneers. In August 1871, the Templers purchased 60 hectares of land from a Greek monastery north of Jaffa, and soon after the foundation stones were laid for the first houses. By 1889, 269 people lived in Sarona. There were 41 homes, a communal hall, a winery, workshops, barns and sheds. The Sarona colonists brought modern farming tools and practices to the Holy Land.
After the declaration of the Independence, most of the old German houses became part of the Dori military base.
Since 2003, the Tel Aviv municipality has been working to preserve and restore Sarona. To make way for a highway, techniques were developed for moving some of the houses to a more convenient location.
Registration & pre-payment essential :

"Not By Bread Alone"
Eleven deaf-blind actors take the audience on a magical tour of their inner world:  the world of darkness, silence and … bread.  As the process of bread making unfolds on stage, the dough is being kneaded, raised and baked for real.  A unique experience occurs between actors and audience as, together, vivid or distant memories are re-enacted, forgotten dreams and joyful moments are recalled -- and touch the spark of creation ever-present in each one of us.
Before or after the show visit Café Kapish (kosher) - a stylish and recently designed coffee shop, offering a variety of appetizing dishes, fine coffee -- an out of the ordinary communication experience.
