Event: Establishment of the First Zionist Colony in Palestine

User login

Petah Tikva (Gate of Hope) is established on the coastal lands of the Palestinian village Mulabbas (near Jaffa) by Jerusalemite Jews, but is very soon evacuated due to malaria and hunger. It will be settled again in 1883, as the first Zionist settlement, by immigrants in the first wave of Jewish immigration to Palestine (1882-1903).
