Celebrating its 25th year, the Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance and Theater has built itself a permanent home within Israeli culture.

In 1989, out of “a need to establish a home in Israel for the art of dance and all its styles and streams,” several parties joined together – the Dellal Family Foundation, the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality, the Tel Aviv Development Fund and the Education and Culture Ministry – to establish the center as an eternal memorial for the late Suzanne Dellal, the daughter of Zehava and Jack Dellal.
