Netanya

Description

Netanya (Hebrew: נְתַנְיָה‎, lit., "God gave") is a city in the Northern Central District of Israel, and is the capital of the surrounding Sharon plain. It is 30 km (18.6 mi) north of Tel Aviv, and 56 km (34.8 mi) south of Haifa, between Nahal Poleg and Wingate Institute in the south and the 'Avichail' stream in the north. Netanya was named in honor of Nathan Straus, a prominent Jewish American merchant and philanthropist in the early 20th century who was the co-owner of Macy's department store.
Its 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) of beaches have made the city a popular tourist resort.
In 2019, it had a population of 221,353, making it the 7th-largest city in Israel. An additional 150,000 people live in the local and regional councils within 10 kilometres (6 miles) of Netanya, which serves as a regional center for them. The city mayor is Miriam Feirberg.
