About Petah Tiqwa

Petach Tikvah (Opening of Hope in Hebrew) has come a long way since its establishment as the first Jewish agricultural settlement in the center of Israel back in the 1870s, becoming the sixth largest city in the country. Today, Petach Tikvah is one of Israels leading business and technology centers, with world-known companies such as Intel and IBM setting their headquarters within the city. The city has plenty of shopping centers, restaurants and coffee shops to enjoy around the city, and Tel Aviv is only 10 miles away. While Petach Tikvah is home to cutting-edge tech industry leaders, the city has kept its simple and authentic Israeli nature  with its fabulous open air shuk (market) offering fresh goods and produce every day, falafel and shawarma stands on the street corners and, most importantly, its warm people. The population of Petach Tikvah is very diverse, comprised of native Israelis, secular and religious communities of Sephardic and Ashkenazi heritage, and new immigrants from Ethiopia, Former Soviet Union, and other countries.
