History
The capital of Israel and its largest city, Jerusalem offers visitors an experience like no other. Located atop the Judean Mountains and in proximity of the Dead Sea, Jerusalem is holy to Jewish, Christian and Muslim religions. One cannot help becoming awestruck when visiting Jerusalem's Old City, which includes the sacred Temple Mount, The Western Wall, Church of the Holy Sepuchre, Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqse Mosque. Jerusalem is home to many cultural institutions as well, most notably the Israel Museum of Art and the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum. Also recommended is Mahane Yehuda Market: located in the center of town, it's smell of fresh herbs and spices and unique sights and sounds are not to be missed.
The programs taking place at the the Ben B. and Joyce E. Eisenberg Israel Tennis Center - Jerusalem focus on diversity and equality. The Tennis Center operates programs for children at risk, developmentally challenged children and Ethiopian children from local absorption centers. The tennis center is also an integral part of our Doubles Coexistence Program - our national effort to bring Arab and Jewish children together through the medium of sport and non-formal education. As Jerusalem represents the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the Ben B. and Joyce E. Eisenberg Israel Tennis Center - Jerusalem also operates the Twinned Kindergarten Program with view of bringing together Palestinian and Israeli children aged 4 to 6 years to jointly participate in weekly motor skill development games and activities. Launched in 2004 together with the Peres Center for Peace, the program improves the coordination, balance and ball skills of the children, and additionally allows the children to gain an appreciation of the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork. Led by our experienced instructors, the children learn and play in mixed Palestinian-Israeli groups, enabling them an opportunity to make new friends with children from the "other side". Through interaction with their twinned kindergarten, the children also gain an appreciation of a second language and culture. We invite you to visit the Ben B. and Joyce E. Eisenberg Israel Tennis Center - Jerusalem. Come and play, meet the childen we serve, receive sight-seeing tips from our staff and experience the excitement we feel every day. Join us!
