#About the Ancient Water Fountain on the Road from Jaffa to Jerusalem, Lod, and Ramle

A sebil is a public building that is built to provide water to passersby. Sebils are built in Muslim regions, there are religious reasons for these fountains, as well as to give water to thirsty people, and provide drinking water for camels and other animals.

In the famous road to Jerusalem, through Lod and Ramle, there is a sebil in Abu Nabbut. It is a Muslim sebil, from the Ottoman period that is an impressive structure that has survived in Jaffa.

The sebil is named after the cruel Mayor of Jaffa in the early 19th century. His name was Muhammad Al-Shamai but because of his cruelty, his nickname was Abu Nabbut, meaning "Father of the Club."

Behind the sabil is a small park named also for Abu Nabbut, with a few statues, including a statue of Igael Tumarkin.

This is not the only sebil dedicated to this man- another sebil was built in old Jaffa and called after him. Only the base of the building remains today. On top of this base, in 2011 a new sebil was built, it can be seen next to the Mahmudiya mosque, on Rosslan Street in Jaffa.



#About the Sebil Structure

Notice the fairly large sebil building, built in the Seljuk style. Its rectangular shape, and three red domes above, small towers in four corners and above them are four more red domes.

In the sebil in Abu Nabbut are two graves and a few windows, located in the structure's small space, the entrance is on the Eastern side. The entrance today is blocked by a barred door.

Notice the marble arch, both in white and red color. In the center are water fountains, and above is Arabic text that blesses the Sultan Mahmud II wishers the sebil drinker's health.

Here is the text translation (from Wikipedia):
"God will be what Allah wants. In the name of Allah, the Merciful and the kind, this place of drinking was built in the days of the victorious king, the honor of our Lord, the Sultan Mahmud II. Health for every drinker. The Muslim year 1230 CE."

#About the Memorial Site for Fallen Members of the National Military Organization

If you look at the southern side of the Charles Clore Garden in Tel Aviv, by the sea you will see an ancient stone building, its upper part dark glass cube that continues the old sandstone structure. This is the Etzel Museum, or Beit Gidi, a museum that was established in memory of Irgun fighters, the initials of the Zionist Fighting Organization, which fought for the liberation of Jaffa during the War of Independence.

Beit Gidi, established in 1983 on the Tel Aviv beach, serves as a museum for the history of the battle in Jaffa. It presents the history of the fighting against the attacks from Jaffa, during the War of Independence, that all began with attacks on Tel Aviv and sniper fire from the direction of Arab Jaffa and ended with the conquest of Jaffa and its transformation into a part of Tel Aviv.

The Etzel Museum also commemorates the history of the Irgun underground from the date of the partition resolution, namely the United Nations resolution on the partition of Palestine on November 29, 1947, until the organization's integration into the IDF.

The museum was built on the foundations of a ruined Arab house from the Manshiyeh neighborhood, which was damaged in the battle for Jaffa and remained in place, partially destroyed. The museum is named "Beit Gidi" named after Amichai Paglin, commander of the Etzel who fought here at the time and whose nickname was "Gidi."

On the exterior of the museum you will see a 120mm mortar used during the War of Independence in 1948.

American German Colony
American German Colony
#About the Colony the Americans Built, the Germans Continued, and its Real Estate Value

The American-German Colony, where you are located, is located between Florentine on the East, Jaffa on the West, and on the way to the sea.

The colony's story starts on September 2, 1866, when American settlers arrive to the Jaffa shores on the well-stocked ship, "Nelly Chippin." The beginning in the Holy Land was difficult. Bureaucracy with the Ottomans delayed the purchase of land, and the settlers spent a few months in tents on the Jaffa beach. Many settlers got sick during this time, and nine of them, mostly children, died within those first few weeks. They ate from hand to hand and at the end of 1866 they legally purchased land and built 10 houses on the two streets assigned to their neighborhood, today Auerbach Street and Bar Hoffman Street.

This is how the first half of the colony started in the second half of the 19th century by the Mormon Americans. This is a group of 157 pioneers from the "Messiah Church," whose leader was an eccentric preacher George Adams. This was a Protestant sect that believed the Jewish nation's return to Israel will bring back the Messiah, and establish "A Thousand Year Monarchy." They believed that this will also bring to the recognition of the Jewish community that the Messiah is Jesus.

But the settlers were innocent. They were unable to adapt to the new country and they didn't even have an income. At a certain point they left the country, with the help of a rich traveler who paid for their journey home. A few years later the colony belonged to German Templars, who were expelled from Germany after World War II, and whose houses were owned by the British, and during the establishment of Israel, ownership was transferred to the Israeli government.

In the past few years this colony has undergone restorations and advance renovations. Today, similar to adjacent Neve Tzedek, the American-German colony provides a window to the first settlement of Tel Aviv, prior to the official establishment of the city.


#Take a look at a few of the houses from the small neighborhood

#Auerbach 4

The Eckley Norton House was one of the first wooden houses built by the American settlers. One of the first wooden structures built by the Americans, with wood brought with them from the US on their boat. All these wooden houses were two floors, and the front had a terrace and special woodwork. The house was later purchased by a British Mission, and for many years was the center for its operations. A restaurant used to also be here, the legendary Keren, a barrier-breaking Israeli restaurant.



#Auerbach 6

This is the first brick house built by the group. This was a house with three floors that was built by two brothers, and started out as a Grand Hotel. But when the brothers fell into financial problems, they were forced to sell the property and it went to the new colony residents - the Templars. The hotel's name was later changed to Hotel Jerusalem, used to be one of the best hotels in the country. A fence around its building and a gate, the building number in both English and German, are witnesses to the glory days of the hotel that once was.

The one who upgraded the hotel and put it up to European standards and demands was Ernest Hardage. He turned the hotel into one of the most important hotels in Jaffa. When the Templars left Israel, during World War II, the hotel stopped operating. With the establishment of Israel it moved to government ownership, was neglected, and abandoned in the 1960's. Only during its latest renovation did it become a luxurious apartment building.



#Auerbach 8


Here is where the Beit Emanuel Hostel is located. This place used to be Hoffman's wooden home, who was one of the Templar pioneers. Later the building was purchased by Platon von Ustinov, a Russian Baron that turned it into a big hotel name "Du Park" in the late 19th century. The German Emperor Wilhelm II slept here during his visit in 1898, the same visit where he met Benjamin Theodore Herzl.

The impressive banyan tree is what is left from the impressive hotel gardens that included among its plants tropical plants and different animals, like parrots and monkeys. Sit under the tree and look across, at the Immanuel Church built in 1904 in the Neo-Gothic style.



#Auerbach 10

This house has a really unbelievable story. This was the Frank House, belonging to the Frank Templar family. Originally that house was built by the Wentworth family from the US. In 2002 the house was purchased, due to its abandoned statues, by an American couple named Jane and Reed Holmes. During the restoration work on the house, Reed Holmes discovered the initials of the person who brought the wood from the US originally. Holmes, who wrote the book about the colony's history and knew by heart all the members of the colony, was surprised to find out he had bought his own family's original home!

The couple established on the ground floor the "Maine Friendship House" - a sort of museum where you can see different items that were used by the original settlers.



#Bar Hoffman 16

At the Floyd House here used to live Rolla Floyd. He and his wife lost their child during the first few weeks in the country, but stayed in the colony and built their home. Floyd turned out to be a glorious businessman, and used the carriage he brought with him from the US to drive around travelers from Jaffa to Jerusalem. He was one of the few that stayed in Jaffa, after most of the colony returned to the US.

HaSha'on Square
Clock Tower Square
#About the Square with the Clock Built by the Turkish

The Clock Tower Square (HaSha'on Square) is one of the main and known areas of Jaffa, from its days as a Turkish stronghold. Of course its name originated from the clock tower itself. The tower is built from sandstone. It is one of about 1,000 clock towers but in the 20th century by the Ottoman Empire. Originally the tower was built in 1906 by Turkish Ottomans that controlled Israel, for the 25th anniversary of the Turkish Sultan Abdul-Hamid's crowning.

At the top of the tower there used to be four clocks, two of which showed the time in Europe. If you look carefully you can see that the first two floors have round edges. These are the original foundations for the tower. Only in 1911 another floor was added, and you can see the difference by its square edges. When the clock was moved to the top floor, a greenish copper plate was added to the clock's original location.

At the tower windows you can see a combination of metal decorations, that describe the history of Jaffa.



#Around the Square

If you turn your head towards the west, to the sea, you will see what is called in Turkish a "Kishla." This is where the Turkish police station and prison was in Jaffa. The British also used this place as a police station, and this is where Jewish underground fighters from the Irgun and Lehi were imprisoned. Until a few years ago it was an active police station in the State of Israel. In 1971, the most popular Israeli film, "The Policeman Azulai," was filmed here, starring Shaya Ophir with his shining performance.

On the other side, towards the East, you can see old looking columns. These are not Roman ruins, during the Ottoman Empire this was the Turkish Saray - the Turkish mayor's house. Later the Jaffa municipality was also located here. During the War of Independence, on January 4, 1948, the Lehi militant group bombed it. A truck parked across from the building exploded and destroyed the building, expect the columns you see today.

If you go 50 meters away from the clock tower, towards the south, you will reach the Abulafia Bakey, a well-known establishment selling Middle Easter baked goods and all delicious.

HaSeraya House
Saraya House
#About the Turkish and British Governmental House

The "Saraya House" (HaSeraya House) in the Clock Tower
Square in Jaffa, was used during the Ottoman Empire rule over Israel. It replaced the Saraya House that was located in ancient Jaffa. Here the institutions of the municipal administration and the Turkish-Ottoman government were located. The building was opened towards the end of the 19th century, in 1897, and it was built using donations from rich Jaffians. In charge of its design was Jewish architect Baruch Pepiermiester, from Rishon Letzion's farmers, and who would later become head of the settlement committee.

During the War of Independence, on January 4th 1948, Lehi combatants bombed the Saraya House, they were the most extreme militant group in Israel. It was a rainy day and the streets were empty. Two Lehi combatants arrived at the square by truck, which they parked across from the Saraya House, even though the guard was yelling for them not to park there, the two promised to be right back as they lit a 80 second switch, and hurried away from the spot. When they were a few blocks away at Jerusalem Boulevard, they heard the massive bomb, which destroyed the building, killing 10 of its residents and injuring over 100 people.

The truth is that Tel Avivians had some issues with this house. Though during the British Mandate it was a mere administrative building, it was also used as the headquarters for Jaffa Arabs. Though the headquarter started for political leaders, during the war the Arab National Committe of Jaffa settled in the building. Thus the building served more and more as the headquarters for the Arab forces of Jaffa, from which shooting activities were directed to the city of Tel Aviv. An explosion during the war was a matter of time ...

Today, only remnants of the Saraya House remain, reconstructed and restored, and became a silent symbol of the terror imposed upon the Arabs of Jaffa at the time, following the attack on such an important governmental symbol.

#About the Russian Church In Abu Kabir

The Russian Church, or St. Peter's Church in Abu Kabir, is a Russian Orthodox Church. According to the Russian Orthodox belief, this is exactly where Simon the Tanner's house stood. This is the house where Christians believe St. Peter was being hosted when he lived in Jaffe and he experienced the gift of dream interpretations.

According to the tradition of believers in the Russian Orthodox Church, in the burial plot next to the church was buried Tabitha, a righteous woman who was very sick and passed away, and Peter brought back to life.

In the tradition, Tabitha was buried in the cave of tombs hewn in the rocky sand dunes. Above the cave, Christians erected a mosaic structure that describes the event. Stairs descend from the structure into the grave caves, where Christian believers tend to light candles.

Incidentally, this burial plot to the west of the church stands in a place that was a Jewish cemetery during the Second Temple period.



#The Church's History

The Russian Church here was established in the 19th century, after in 1835 it was found to be associated with the burial site of Tabitha. Though no evidence has been found to support this theory, strong beliefs made sure that the area around the burial plot was purchased in 1888, and a church was built.

In 1894 the church was completed and it began being used as a traveler's hotel, for those Russian believers who were making the long journey from Jaffe to Jerusalem.

When World War II broke out, the Ottomans evacuated the Russians from the church since they were subjects from Allied powers. After the war, church believer exiled from Russia came to the church as representatives of the Russian-Orthodox Church.

With the establishment of the state of Israel the church was returned officially to the Russian Church, being ruled by the communists. This is what lead this church, as far as is known, during the Cold War to become K.G.B headquarters, that sat right at the heart of Israel.
Kedumim Square
Kedumim Square
#About the Main Square in Old Jaffa

Kedumim Square today is the main square of Old Jaffa. This square has restaurants and cafes and during the summer it serves as a venue for small shows open to the public. From there you can descend to the alleys of Old Jaffa, towards the harbor. Just below the square you can visit the history museum of Jaffa.

If you descend from the square a little to the east, you can look out to the sea to the west and see the rocks known as the Andromeda Rock in the sea, a few hundred meters from the beach.

Here, according to legend, Andromeda was tied to the rocks, as a sacrifice of the people of Jaffa, to appease the sea monster, so that the monster could devour her. And here came the miracle in which the hero Perseus saved Andromeda, a moment before the monster rose from the sea to devour her. Perseus took Andromeda on his flying horse and they married and lived happily ever since.

On the north-west side of the square you can see St. Peter's Church, the main Franciscan church of Jaffa. This church is seen when you look at Jaffa from the shores of Tel Aviv and even appeared in the past with the symbol of the city of Tel Aviv-Jaffa.

Jaffa Hill
#About Jaffa's Ancient Hill

Every time it is said that Jaffa is one of the oldest cities in the world, they mean that the oldest ruins were found in archeological digs on the Jaffa hill. This is where the most ancient ruins in all of Jaffa were found. There are ruins dating back to more than 4,000 years. On the southern side of the hill you can see excavations where interesting things were found, like the gates to an Egyptian city from 3,500 years ago. Jaffa was born from this hill.

This hill was a strategic location, good for the protection and construction of fortresses. Its great advantage is that it overlooks the sea and provides a good view for all sides. The remains of a settlement from the end of the 17th century BCE were discovered in an area that is now located in the "Ramses Gate Garden." Some two hundred years later, the great conqueror and founder of the Egyptian empire, Pharaoh Thutmose III, conquered it. According to an ancient papyrus, here one of Thutmose III's army ministers, Tzchuti, preceded the Greeks with the Trojan horse trick. He hid armed soldiers in baskets and gave the baskets to the governors of the Old City, the soldiers burst out of the baskets and conquered the city.

If you go up a little bit to the top of the hill, you will reach the top of Jaffa Hill. From there you will see a fascinating view of Tel Aviv as a whole and the Tel Aviv-Herzliya coastline and on days with especially good visibility Hadera can even be seen.

Mahmoudiya Mosque
#About Jaffa's Most Important Mosque

The center of Jaffa's religious life has always been Jaffa's largest and most important mosque, the Al-Mahmoudiya Mosque. It was named after Muhammad Abu Nabbut, the ruler of Jaffa at the beginning of the 19th century and the one who rehabilitated it. The same Abu Nabbut was nicknamed for the big club he used to carry around the hurt the inhabitants of Jaffa.

The mosque was built in 1730, and rebuilt in 1814 as the Mahmoudiya Mosque. On the outer wall of the mosque you can see Sebil Suleiman, this is a "rahat" in Arabic "sebil", a facility used as a water fountain for passersby and camel convoys that passed through Jaffa. The rahat is no longer as beautiful as it used to be, but it is impressive in size and you can be see the inscription dedicated to its founders.

Go to the front door of the mosque, right under the turret. On the door is a dedication in Arabic to the Turkish Sultan, written during the construction of the mosque. Try to enter the mosque, if possible. You will see inside its beautiful inner courtyard, the chapels around it and the mehrab set on its southern side. Mehrab is an alcove in the wall of the mosque that points to the Qibla, the direction of the Ka'aba, the holy building of the Muslims, located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where Muslims face when praying.

St. Peter's Church
#About the Church that Became the Symbol of Jaffa

St. Peter's Church can be seen from any point on the beaches of Tel Aviv. It is a Franciscan Catholic Church named after St. Peter, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and the first pope.

Catholic tradition identifies the place of the church with the house of Simon the Tanner, where Saint Peter had a dream, which gave rise to the Christian missionary, which has since then turned outward, to the non-Jews of those times.

The church stands on the site where Christian buildings, Crusader fortresses, churches, a hotel for Pilgrims and more have been built for almost 1,500 years. Unfortunately all these were destroyed by the Muslims. The current Baroque structure was built at the end of the 19th century under the auspices of the Spanish royal family. From the beginning of the 20th century the church served as the main Catholic Church of Jaffa until 1932, when it was replaced by St. Anthony's Church on Yefet Street.

Today, they participate in masses held by the Church in five languages, mainly migrant workers, diplomatic personnel residing in Israel and Christians from the Arab population in Jaffa.

The church and its bell tower appeared in the former symbol of the city of Tel Aviv-Jaffa.



#About the Architecture of the Church of St. Peter

The eastern façade of the building is distinctly divided into a church (to the left and south) and to the monastery (right and north), with the gates of the two separate wings resting side by side.

The façade is light brown, with two light beams crossing it. Among the cornices is a frieze with metaphors bearing the Vatican emblem. The façade is also decorated with vertical reliefs resembling columns with doves symbols, also in a light brown shade. Above the front door is a plaque bearing the symbol of the Custody of the Holy Land, the symbol of the Franciscan order (the naked arm of Jesus and the arm of Francis of Assisi), a dove symbolizing the Holy Spirit and the crown of the kingdom symbolizing the Father God. On the second floor is a large rectangular window with a pediment above it. At the top of the pediment was a travertine rock that was brought from Banias, where Jesus gave the first born to Peter. The bell tower is located in Kedumim Square, in the southwestern corner of the building, and is topped by a dome. In addition to the bell there are also four clocks in the tower, one on each side.

The structure of a single ship on each side has five chapels. Its walls are covered with marble and are fixed with stained-glass windows manufactured in Munich dedicated to Spanish saints. The ceiling is high and is made in the shape of a barrel vault. The pulpit is decorated with brown wood and is attached to the northern wall between two of the chapels. The stand adopts motifs from the plant world - it rests on a pillar like a trunk beneath it, and above it branches that look like the tops of the tree. The main work of art in the church is located above the altar and describes Peter's dream while in Jaffa. In the church there are several other works of art that depict episodes of Peter's life-the changing status of it, the giving of the keys to the sky, the miracle of the fish, and the washing of the feet before the Last Supper. The church also contains descriptions of the Assumption of Purity, the Holy Family, Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Order, and in the first chapel to the left of the entrance, a copy of the black Madonna icon from Czestochowa is displayed.



#About the Monastery in the Church of Petrus

The exterior walls of the monastery are bright and unadorned, and it is divided into two parts. The eastern part is built around a small central courtyard bordering the southern side of the church and on the western side of the dressing room. Along the other two sides there is an arcade leading to meeting rooms and service rooms, and in the center of the courtyard is a statue of Louis IX. The round tower, a remnant of the historic fortress, is located in the northwestern corner of the courtyard and in its basement is a round stone chapel. Narrow steps lead to the upper level where the library of the monastery is located, mainly containing books and periodicals in Polish. The western part of the monastery is higher and houses the monks' quarters, the kitchen, the unused reptorium, a large prayer hall and other rooms. The upper floor of this building has an impressive view of the Mediterranean Sea and Andromeda Rock. The entire building was renovated in the first decade of the 21st century and an elevator was installed there. For four years the monastery housed only four monks - two Poles, an Englishman and a Chilean.
Abu Hassan
#About the Hummus Place that Became an Empire

Hummus Abu Hassan in Jaffa is considered one of the most popular hummus spots in Israel. The place, whose real name is Ali Karavan, has for many years had a large and loyal clientele, Jews and Arabs, waiting patiently for their long awaited hummus.

The small, simple restaurant is a kind of workers' restaurant, specializes in hummus only. As is the case with many working restaurants, you may find yourself sitting together with foreign guests around the same table.

The service is fast and efficient and the noise of the waiters is part of the business here.


#What are We Eating?

Abu Hassan serves only 4 dishes: hummus, masabacha, full and white. There is also a dish called "triangle" that includes hummus, full and maschaba, side by side.

Our recommendation is the wonderful masabacha, which many consider Abu Hassan's flagship dish. Like the hummus, it is also eaten with fresh pita and onion. The masabacha is prepared by order, so it arrives hot and fresh to your table.




#History of the Place

Abu Hassan is an empire, with history and everything. It was established as a hummus full cart, that Ali Karaven carried it around Jaffa in the late 1950's. At one point the owner decided to settle in a permanent place and in 1971 he opened the restaurant on Dolphin Street in Jaffa.

Without effort or publicity and without a secret recipe other than fresh products, the rumor of his hummus was passed and he succeeded. Suceeded very well. The place was named Abu Hassan, after Ali's eldest son. Many see it as the best hummus in Israel, and over the years, additional branches have opened on Shivtei Yisrael Street in the area. They are run by Ali's other sons.

Ali Karavan passed away in 2007. To his sons he left a legacy of hummus at a cheap price and excellent quality, without nonsense and without branding. Just good food, healthy and fast.

Enjoy your meal!


#Tips

Do not be alarmed by the long line lurking in the entrance, it moves quickly.

Open from 8:00 am until the hummus ends, usually around the early afternoon.

Here strangers sit with other strangers at the same table. Do not panic - it can be really fun!
