Where is Kefar Sava Located?
Kfar Saba, with about 100,000 inhabitants, is located about 15 km northeast of Tel Aviv in the Sharon Plain, 10 km east of the Mediterranean coast near Herzliya, in the immediate vicinity of the West Bank occupied by Israel in the Six-Day War in 1967. Kfar Saba dates back to the ancient settlement of Chabarzaba. In modern Kfar Saba, the first local council was elected in 1939. Worth seeing are the Cultural Center Yad Labanim and the Archaeology Museum. A view from the water tower is also worthwhile.
What Country is Kefar Sava in?
The outstanding element of the partnership between Wiesbaden and Kfar Saba are the civil meetings, where visitors are accommodated in host families.
The relationship between the two cities dates back to the early 1970s, when the Wiesbaden youth office and the Beit Berl College established their first contacts.
Various contacts between the two cities culminated in a visit by a Wiesbaden Delegation in 1980. The mayor of Kfar Saba at the time, Zeev Geller, signalled his willingness to officially link the two cities. Following the adoption of the relevant decisions, the partnership agreement entered into force in 1981 after the first joint signing in Kfar Saba. Scheduling problems meant that the counter-proclamation could only take place on 25 May 1983 in Wiesbaden.
