Jaffa Port

 
 

The Jaffa Port is one of the oldest known harbors in the world, notably being the port from which Jonah set off in the famous Biblical story of Jonah and the Whale

Jaffa Port 


Nowdays the port mostly serves as an entertainment facility incorporating a boardwalk and warehouses hosting bars, fish restaurants, shops and exhibitions of art and photography, whilst retaining its operations as a working port from where tens of fishermen head off into the Mediterranean each night.

 

The port also hosts the nonprofit Nalaga'at Centre, home to a deaf-blind theatre company.
