A street in Hatikva

Hatikva Quarter (Hebrew: שכונת התקווה, Shkhunat Hatikva) is a working class neighbourhood in southeastern Tel Aviv, Israel.


The quarter was founded in 1935, named for "Mount Hope" ("Har HaTikva" in Hebrew), a farm built in 1853 by Protestant Prussian and American Protestants and abandoned. Johann Steinbeck was the grandfather of John Steinbeck and abandoned the colony in 1858 after Arab attackers killed his brother and raped his brother's wife and mother-in-law.[1][2] It became part of the Tel Aviv municipal area after the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.
