In honor of the new civil year, the clock in the Clock Tower in Jaffa is back in operation

Hundreds of residents arrived tonight, Friday through Saturday, at Clock Square in Jaffa, counting down to mark the start of the new civil year. At exactly midnight the bell rang 12 times and 2022 officially began.

Recall that the clock, built by the Turks about 120 years ago, was disabled for several months due to a rare mechanical malfunction. After many efforts, the municipality was able to locate an expert answering machine and the necessary spare parts, and made many efforts so that the Jaffa icon would once again operate on the occasion of the civil year. Fireworks and decorations in Clock Square added to the festive atmosphere.

Ron Huldai, The Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo: “In recent years, we have invested hundreds of millions of shekels in the tourist sites of Jaffa, which have made it the number one tourist center in the city. It was important for us to finish the repair of the historic clock in Jaffa, which is a tourist center, for the residents and visitors who came to celebrate the beginning of the civic year together, in a joint countdown. I wish us all a good and successful civic year. “
