It seemed worlds away from
the bustle of cosmopolitan Tel
Aviv; although, in fact, it had tak-
en just a short bus ride from Tel
Aviv to bring me to this scenic
and distinctive area of the old
port city of Jaffa.
On a previous visit to Tel Aviv,
I had time for only a quick trip to
Old Jaffa. But I remembered its
special mystique, and I had been
eager to return ever since.
Bus #10 from Ben Yehuda
Street in Tel Aviv brought me to
the landmark Clock Tower in Jaf-
fa, an exotic Oriental relic built
by the former Turkish rulers.
Nearby, signs pointed the way to
Old Jaffa; and I began the short

and antique shops.

such a concentrated area, make
this sector a pleasure for
browsers or serious shoppers.
Silver. Antiques. Needlecraft.
Judaica. Paintings and prints. All
could be found in the shops and
the studios of artists and artisans
located along the narrow, hilly
streets.

Gabriela, weaver; Rachel Gera,
art and jewelry designer; David
Ben Zion, creator of Yemenite
Art. Then I came to a corner
