Ness Ziona

Ness Ziona is a city in central Israel. At the end of 2009 the city had a total population of 38,100, and its jurisdiction was 15,579 dunams (15.579 km2).HistoryWadi Chanin/Nahalat ReubenNess Ziona was first known as Wadi Chanin after the local Arab village, and Nahalat Reuben after Reuben Lehrer, who owned the land and started the Jewish settlement there in 1883.In 1878, the German Templer Gustav Reisler purchased lands in Wadi Hunayn, planted an orchard, and lived there with his family. The name "Wadi-Chanin", with its German orthography, became the standard Western name for the place for several decades to come. After losing his wife and children to malaria, Reisler returned to Europe. He travelled to Odessa in 1882 and met Reuben Lehrer, a religiously observant Russian Jew with Zionist ideals, who had his own farmland there. Reisler traded his parcel of land in Palestine for Lehrer's land in Russia. Lehrer made aliyah with his eldest son Moshe in 1883, bringing his wife and another four of his children over the following year.Lehrer placed advertisements near Jaffa port asking others to join him. The pioneers established a neighborhood named Tel Aviv although the area was still known as Wadi Chanin, from its Arabic name, Wadi Hunayn. In 1888, Avraham Yalovsky, a blacksmith, was killed defending his property from Arab gangs.
