From the Mayor of Rishon LeZion



It all started way back on July 31, 1882, with three tents on a dusty and desolate hill. Since then, Rishon LeZion has evolved into a thriving and prosperous city with over 250,000 residents.

Israel's fourth largest city and one of the country’s most important metropolises, Rishon LeZion is a leader in many fields, including housing, entertainment, commerce and industry. According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, based on yearly income per person, average value of housing and the purchase of consumers' durable goods, the quality of life in Rishon LeZion is one of the highest in the nation.

Our city boasts distinctive residential areas, attractive parks, a beautiful beach, many cultural and artistic projects, academic institutes, industrial and entertainment zones, bustling shopping centers, and much more.
