Tel Aviv-Yafo is the second largest city in Israel (after Jerusalem) located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and has a population of 382,500.
The city of Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 by Jewish immigrants as an alternative to the expensive neighboring historic town of Jaffa. The two towns became united in the single municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo in 1950, two years after the establishment of the State of Israel. Tel Aviv is today viewed by many as Israel's economic and cultural capital with a vibrant, European style feel, and a UNESCO World Heritage Status for its Bauhaus architecture.

Located in the northern part of Tel Aviv,
Tel Aviv University is the largest university in Israel and the biggest Jewish university in the world. Its origins go back to 1956, when three small education units - The Tel Aviv School of Law and Economics, an Institute of Natural Sciences, and an Institute of Jewish Studies - joined together to form the University of Tel Aviv. At first attached to the Tel Aviv municipality, the University was granted autonomy in 1963, and its campus in the residential section of Ramat Aviv was established the same year.
