Ramat-Gan, located in west central Israel, east of Tel Aviv, is an important industrial center. Having a population of about 150,000 people, Ramat-Gan is one of the 15 largest cities in Israel. Ramat-Gan and Phoenix established a sister city relationship in 2005.
Ramat-Gan was declared a city on January 21, 1950. The city originated as an agricultural community adjacent to Tel Aviv. The pioneers that purchased the territory in 1914 called it “Ir Ganim” (“Garden City”), with the goal of founding a community of private farms. The first residents arrived in 1921, following World War 1 and British Mandate governance. Apart from being well-known for its diamond exchange, the city is also home to Israel’s largest sports stadium and the tallest building, Moshe Aviv Tower. Ramat-Gan’s many museums, parks, and synagogues contribute to its fascinating culture.
