Lod, A City at Crossroads
Lod is just nine miles from Tel Aviv. Geographically in the center, the city lives on its fringes.
Lod is one of Israel’s oldest cities with a magnificent heritage of different cultures leaving their indelible mark. At once, it is:
*A Biblical Jewish city
*Home to Roman Polis sages
*An important Christian city in the Middle Ages
*A Muslim provincial capital
*A city of immigrants since the State of Israel’s founding!
Despite its storied history, today’s Lod has enormous social, educational and economic difficulties.
