A project of The Tel Aviv Foundation with the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo and the Israel Ministry of Culture and Sport, the extensions were officially opened by Guy Dellal and family in memory of his parents, Zehava and Jack, in the presence of Mayor Ron Huldai. The event featured fantastic performances by Batsheva Dance Company, the Ironi A School of Dance, and the Maslool – Professional Dance Program at Bikurey Ha’Itim Center.

Led by the establishment of the Center, Neve Tzedek has been completely transformed from a run-down neighborhood into the ‘Soho of Tel Aviv’.
