Tel Zion

Tel Zion is home to about 1,000 families, with a population of about 6,000 people. The yishuv is currently growing and there are about 400 new housing units under construction. In addition, the management of the yishuv is advancing plans for additional commercial areas and construction. The outline plan for the yishuv has the potential for about 7,000 housing units, and the yishuv and the regional council are working to speed up processes in order to reach this goal.

Tel Zion is an ultra-Orthodox community-style yishuv. This is expressed by the activities that are organized for all of the residents – men, women, teens, and children, special events and various cultural programming. The yishuv is home to various distinct communities, but despite their differences, all of the residents are connected like one, big community.

Public transportation to Tel Zion is one of the most developed in the country, both in terms of the frequency of buses and in the manner that it is conducted.

There are several kollels in the yishuv, with hundreds of avrechim who sit and learn all day long. The schools are the pride of the yishuv, and almost all of them are in permanent buildings. There are currently: 4 Talmudei Torah for boys, a Bais Yaakov for girls, kindergartens, daycares and many private playgroups, a seminar for high school girls, a yeshiva ketana, a yeshiva gedola. There are also 13 synagogues surrounded by cohesive, organized communities.

There are three kupat cholim health clinics, a supermarket, and other stores.

It is noticeable how much the local residents love the yishuv.
