The Tel Aviv District (Hebrew: מָחוֹז תֵּל אָבִיב) is the smallest and most densely populated of six administrative districts of Israel with a population of 1.2 million residents.[1] It is 99.0% Jewish and 1.0% Arab (0.7% Muslim, 0.3% Christian)[citation needed]. It is also the only of the six districts to simultaneously not border the West Bank, Gaza Strip or any international border, instead being surrounded on the north, east and south by Central District and on the west by the Mediterranean Sea.

The district's capital is Tel Aviv and the metropolitan area created by the Tel Aviv district and its neighboring cities is named Gush Dan.
