About the project
The Ya’acov Herzog Garden is located on a steep hill near the entrance to the city from the Tel Aviv highway, offering views out to Lifta and Ramot. It consists of a lawn, footpaths and landscaping below and a play area above. The garden was created in memory of the rabbi, scholar and diplomat Ya’acov Herzog, who served as a close advisor to four Israeli prime ministers and as ambassador to Canada. Herzog was the son of Isaac Herzog, Chief Rabbi of Ireland from 1919 to 1937 and brother of Cha’im Herzog, the former president of Israel.
