Thank U Tan.
I sure hope that the fact that Holon has received exceptional international recognition including winning the bid for hosting the 4th KCWS will help it this year!

Cinderella of the sand dunes

With 300 acres of parks and green spaces, Holon has gone from a stagnating suburb with a reputation for crime and neglect to a sophisticated city that has earned international attention.

Mayor Moti Sasson has transformed the city of Holon into a world-class cultural center popular with young families “in spite of, and despite everything.”Holon’s city motto expresses the drive and determination of its first settlers, who braved relentless heat, isolation, a lack of water, financial hardship and bloody attacks to build a flourishing Jewish city on the barren sand dunes a few kilometers south of Tel Aviv.
This year, as Holon celebrates 70 years since its official founding, the city is also rejoicing in the fruits of the unprecedented cultural and social renaissance that has taken place over the last 15 years.
