Kfar Saba, a community founded in 1903, achieved municipal status in 1962. The city’s location, its population, and its quality of life not only serve to attract new residents, but keep its native residents firmly rooted and established. Kfar Saba is located in the center of Israel. Kfar Saba, which is spread over 14,250 dunams (3.563 acres) includes numerous gardens and lush, green public parks. It is rich in leisure, cultural and sports activities, and its youth are actively involved in community life.
It is one of the top cities in Israel in terms of quality of life and the scope of services it provides its residents. The city has won the Education Prize, the Youth Prize, the Minister’s Prize for Environmental Excellence and the Interior Ministry prize for sound financial administration. 50% of Kfar Saba’s teenagers are involved in community volunteer work. Kfar Saba was declared a Green City in 2011, and as such continues to invest in various unique projects, including the Green Neighborhoods project that includes a “green” school, the first of its kind in Israel.
Kfar Saba Rotary Club was established in 1960. It is one of the eldest volunteer organization in our city. In our club there are 46 members, men and women, from a wide variety of occupations. We meet once a week on Sunday evening at 20.30 in Gallery 29 in Kfar-Saba. Lectures, parties etc. are taking place during these meetings as well as club members going out together to shows and theaters, travelling around the country and abroad. All these activities come to strengthen the social bond within the club.
