About the tour

The birth of the State of Israel is celebrated annually with YOM HAZIKARON and YOM HAATZMAUT - Memorial Day and Independence Day, respectively. In this two-part virtual tour you will get an insider's view of the most emotional days in the Israeli calendar. Part I - Memorial Day eve - starting with a view of the sun set on the Mediterranean Sea, we'll walk the Tel Aviv promenade from the Seagull Monument to a special memorial ceremony held on the beach. We'll talk about how Israel remembers its fallen soldiers and and experience the tranditional TZFIRA (sirens heard across the country in rememberance of the fallen). Part II - Independence Day eve - after sunset, marking the end of Memorial Day and the start of Independence Day, we'll walk from HaBima Square to Rabin Square, participating in the post-pandemic 73rd birthday celebration of the State of Israel. And, of course, we'll witness the fireworks 🎆 in action!

Meet Tomer


Tomer has been guiding tours in the city since 2008. What started out of fascination about his family's history - the Chelouche family is one of the founding families of Tel Aviv - has seen him meet new people and show the city that has transformed over the course of several generations. On Tomer's tours, you'll get to discover fascinating stories about its history, culture, and much more, especially since Tomer's ancestors participated in the establishment of the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of ancient Jaffa, and the modern city of Tel Aviv.
