In the heart of the Sharon Region, Ra’anana was established by a group of immigrants from New York. Today its expanding population includes many olim from England, South Africa, Australia and the United States, as well as from France and South America. Companies including Microsoft and Amdocs, Hewlett-Packard, SAP and Texas Instruments have their Israel head offices in Ra’anana’s industrial zones.
Ra’anana has always been popular with Anglo-Israeli families and those who appreciate its clean streets and well-run urban facilities. Today middle-class Israeli and French families are choosing Ra’anana because of the high standards of its schools and its tolerant traditional Jewish atmosphere – restaurants and shops on its main streets are all closed on Shabbat. Its international popularity explains the city’s higher than average property prices, but they are matched by excellent facilities, such as the stunning Park Ra’anana (shown below) with its outdoor auditorium, and advanced educational programs for gifted students.
