See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Soronna, the German Colony outside Jaffa founded by the Templars in the early ’80s, has, by its own request, been included in the jurisdiction of the municipality of Tel-Aviv, the self contained Jewish community.

Soronna’s choice lay between Jewish Tel-Aviv and the municipality of Jaffa, which is predominately Arab, and the Germans chose the former.
