Stories abound about the courageous chalutzim (pioneers) of old who came from Europe to Petach Tikva in the late 1880s.

Filled with spirit, they fought to drain the swamps and settle the first modern-day Jewish agricultural center.

At a terrible price to their health and wellbeing, the chalutzim succeeded at last in loading up their products by mule for delivery to Jerusalem’s markets.

Later, the settlement became a center for the pioneers and laborers of the “Aliya Bet” immigration as well.

In 1937, the British Mandate government granted Petach Tikva the standing of a full-fledged city, becoming the nation’s second Jewish city, after Tel Aviv.

  • The Baruch Mall, which long preceded the time when malls became an integral part of the Petach Tikva urban landscape, was once the city’s one-and-only shopping center.

  • USA Pizza Parlor, where the magic of this American-flavored fast-food enterprise once made it THE place for Petach Tikva’s youth to be.
