Tel Aviv at Night

The name Tel Aviv (literally "Hill of Spring") was chosen in 1910 from many suggestions, among them "Herzliya". Tel Aviv is the Hebrew title of Theodor Herzl's book book Altneuland ("Old New Land"). From the Book of Ezekiel "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."
