Gan Ofer Shopping Mall

Exploring Tel Aviv

Let’s go and do some shopping in Tel Aviv, a good place to start is Gan Ofer shopping mall. The mix of stores is diverse and attractive. Alongside leading local brands there are also exclusive international brands. In addition, Gan Ha’ir meets the daily needs of the residents of the neighborhood, including: A premium supermarket , vegetable and fruit store, deli, sewing shop with laundry and dry cleaning services, hairdresser, manicure-pedicure and more.



The History Behind Gan Ofer Shopping Mall

The Gan Ofer Shopping Mall operates six days a week and has established itself as the meeting, entertainment, and shopping center of central Tel Aviv. The complex regularly hosts various quality content events for children and the whole family, such as food fairs, plays, and performances, workshops for babies and their parents, and a wide range of attractions that change throughout the year.

Sadly, it is where the Former PM Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.

Finally, the shopping mall was built in 1981. The structure consists of two main parts: a mall and a tower – both rely on the octagonal shape as their design element—the mall borders Ibn Gvirol Street in the east and Hadassah Street in the north. The mall has one commercial floor above the street level and another floor below it, two floors. In the center is an octagonal courtyard, open to the sky, and with a fountain. The roof of the mall serves as a free extension to the public. An underground car park is located west of the mall, below the residential tower.

The Assassination of Yitzhak Rabin

Near the Gan Ofer Shopping Mall on the south end, one of the most important moments in modern Israel occurred. Of course, I am referring to the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, which took place on 4 November 1995  at 21:42. In fact, it was just at the end of a rally in support of the Oslo Accords at the Kings of Israel Square in Tel Aviv. Now the assassin, an Israeli ultranationalist named Yigal Amir, radically opposed Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s peace initiative; particularly the signing of the Oslo Accords. On my tours of Tel Aviv, I take my guests to the memorial dedicated to Rabin.
