Herzliya High School

(Gymnasia Herzliya)
   First Hebrew high school in Palestine. It was founded in Jaffa in 1905 for the purpose of providing a Jewish and secular education using Hebrew as the language of instruction. It was originally called the Gymnasia Ivrit of Jaffa and later renamed for Theodor Herzl. It helped to educate generations of Jewish youth. Shalom Meir Tower was controversially built atop this school in 1965.
