Independence Hall Coastal Plain, Tel Aviv

בית העצמאות

The tour of Independanca hall is short but totally worthwhile. It's an interesting museum, in that there isn’t that much to see. This house was originally built for Tel Aviv’s first mayor, Meir Dizengoff. It was used on May 14, 1948 to declare the State of Israel just a day before the British Mandate was to expire (Jerusalem was under siege at the time so the members of the Provisional State Counsil had to find a location in Tel Aviv). A visit to Independence Hall - or Beit Haatzmaut - is a must for anyone with a connection to, or interest in Zionism. The tour is offered in many languages and your tour guide will give a fascinating talk about the establishment of the State for about a half hour. After that you will watch video of the actual event followed by Hatikvah. Have tissues handy. The emotional impact of this short but powerful tour often elicits tears from visitors. Not to be missed.
