Herzliya is an Israeli city in the northern district of Tel Aviv. It was named after Theodor Herzl, the father of modern Zionism, and founded in 1924 as a semi-cooperative farming community. Thanks to the large number of immigrants, the village quickly expanded and by 1962 had become a city of 25,000 inhabitants, growing to 290,000 today. The western, coastal part of the city, Herzliya Pituah, is one of the country’s most affluent neighborhoods. It has a marina, as well as an important technological center, which is often referred to as the Silicon Valley of Israel.
