The building, one of Tel Aviv's oldest, was built in 1909. On May 14, 1948, the day before the end of the British mandate for Palestine, members of the Jewish Interim State Department gathered here to declare the establishment of the State of Israel. In 1978, the building was opened as an independent memorial hall.
The very building of Tel Aviv (not Jerusalem) where the State of Israel (מדינת ישראל) was declared a nation on Friday, May 14, 1948, by first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, as also witnessed by Meir Dizengoff, the first mayor of Tel Aviv. Beforehand and dating back from the 19th century, Austro-Hungarian Theodor Herzl (the Father of Modern Zionism) visited the land that was Palestine and inhabited by the Arabs and he began to envision there as a State for the Jewish people. Although Herzl passed away in 1905, his dream of the Jewish State has been fulfilled posthumously.Behind where Ben Gurion declared Israel independent on the mic was a photo of Herzl in the latter's honor
This place was really cool, but I am not a huge history kid. I definitely learned a lot about the history of Israel and Tel Aviv, but it was a little boring because it was all listening, not really anything hands-on. If you are looking for an educational, short historical visit, I think this is an importance place to go because you are there for maybe an hour. The people who work there give a nice, brief presentation on the history of the building and a timeline of important events that happened and people who played a role. Overall, I would not go for fun, but if you are with a group looking to explore and learn about Tel Aviv, then it's worth the quick stop.
A three-dimensional look at the memorial is expected to reveal a tumultuous period, and Israel has since built the world's most unique military service, based on history. Like adult men, they have three years to go to military service, three times to 18 to 60 years of age, each half-year.
This is perhaps one of the most emblematic buildings that Israel has. The State of Israel was declared there on May 14, 1948. If you want to know the history, of course, the version of the Israelis, this is the place indicated. It is good for them, but it is very segmented and they have a very tendency look for one side, obviously and almost making Palestine and its people disappear from history. I wouldn't like to minimize the size and importance of this building, but I didn't like it as they told the story.
