Tel Aviv, Israel


Notes: Tel Aviv-Yafo (Hebrew: תֵּל־אָבִיב-יָפוֹ; Arabic: تَلْ أَبِيبْ يَافَا) is the second largest city in Israel and is located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It is also the main part of the largest and most populous metropolitan area in Israel, Gush Dan (Dan Bloc).
Tel Aviv's jurisdiction is 50,553 dunams (50.6 km² or 19.5 sq mi). The population density is 7,445 people per km². According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), as of June 2006, the city's population stood at 382,500, growing at an annual rate of 0.9%. 96.1% percent of residents are Jewish, while 3.0% are Arab Muslims and 0.9% are Arab Christians. According to some estimates, about 50,000 unregistered foreign workers live in Tel Aviv.

Sokolow took the name from the Book of Ezekiel, 3:15 : "Then I came to them of the captivity at Tel Aviv, that lived by the river Chebar, and to where they lived; and I sat there overwhelmed among them seven days." (The spelling in the King James Version of the Bible is Telabib ).
