Jaffa Port, in Operation for 3,000 Years, to Be Shut Down Next Month

The port of Jaffa which has been in continuous operation for 3,000 years, will be shut down on November 9. All workers at the Jaffa port have been offered employment at the new Israel port of Ashdod which is due to open on November 24. Several suggestions for the future use of the Jaffa port have been submitted to the Israel Port Authority. Among these are proposals that the port be turned into a pleasure boat marina, a fishing port and a maritime training school.
