Habima Theater, Tel Aviv

The Habima Theater in Tel Aviv is Israel’s national theater, rebuilt and reopened in 2009 as a modern theater of world-class proportions. Whilst almost all productions at Habima Theater are in Hebrew, many are translated simultaneously into English, making it very possible for tourists to enjoy the performances here.

History of the Habima Theater

The Habima with Habima Square in the front.

Originally founded in 1913 in Moscow, the Habima was one of the first modern Hebrew language theaters. It moved to its current home in the culturally vibrant city of Tel Aviv in 1928 following persecution in Russia, and successful world tours. The theater settled on its current landmark site at the top of Rothschild Boulevard in what is known as Habima Square in 1945.

In 2009, the complex was completely refurbished and the Habima now offers a truly modern theatrical experience in a historically important Tel Aviv location. The theater is an iconic building within the The White City of Tel Aviv, and one of the most impressive cultural highlights of the city.
