Jaffa Community

There are few places in the world quite like Jaffa. It may be 4,000 years old, but down its cobbled streets you’ll find some of the most cutting edge art, music, and culture in the Middle East. To be a Jaffa local is to live among a mosaic of people, relax in laid back cafes, visit the newest bars, shop in one of a kind boutiques, and of course have unmatched views of the Mediterranean.

The Pishpesh Shekel

The Jaffa community has a new way to get involved and support the community while connecting with other locals - the Pishpesh Shekel. The Pishpesh Shekel is a digital currency unique to Jaffa that helps support local businesses while giving Jaffa locals access to special events, discounts, and community activities. Using the Pishpesh Shekel is even easier than cash, since you never need to visit an ATM, and you can leave your wallet at home.
