*NOTE: Tel-Aviv is a Philadelphia Sister City
This exhibition celebrating and exploring Tel Aviv at 100 does a remarkable job of unpacking the inner life and historical reality of Israel's greatest modem city. It enables us to see Tel Aviv with fresh eyes and, hopefully, suggests that it is time for us to go again (or for the first time) and experience modem Israel in the form of a living city: Tel Aviv! ~ Rabbi Lance J. Sussman, Ph.D.
