Ramat Aviv Alef or Ramat Aviv HaYeruka, and originally plainly Ramat Aviv (Hebrew: רָמַת אָבִיב, lit. Spring Heights), is a neighborhood in northwest Tel Aviv, Israel.
Ramat Aviv was founded in 1950s following the great influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe. Golda Meir lived in the neighborhood from 1959 to 1978.
In January 2011 it was published that remains of a building, believed to be 7,800–8,400 years old, were discovered in an archaeological excavation carried out in 8 Fichman Street in Ramat Aviv, by the Israel Antiquities Authority. The findings attest to permanent habitation on the northern bank of the Yarkon River.
