From Tel Aviv University in the north to Jaffa down south, these iconic sculptures can be found in all corners of this artistic city.

KESHER by Ron Arad

This eye-catching sculpture wrapped around the trees of Tel Aviv University’s campus (photo above) was created by award-winning Israeli architect Ron Arad to honor the 4,000 Ethiopian Jews who died on their journey from Ethiopia to Israel.

Its title, “Kesher,” translates to “connection.” Arad used interwoven metals that snake around the square’s palm trees to signify unity and connection.
