The ancient Biblical city of Ashkelon is today a beautiful community of 110,000 residents, nestled on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Ashkelon is 48 km south of Tel Aviv, approximately 50 minutes by train, 40 minutes by car. Providing a high standard of living at low cost, Ashkelon is an excellent community to begin your new life in Israel.
In the early 1950s, a large number of South African Jews immigrated to Ashkelon, followed by successive waves of Olim from the UK, bringing a touch of their culture to this beachside city.
