Jaffa is a port city with long and reach History. In Biblical times it was known as port-of-entry for the Cedars of Lebanon for Solomon’s Temple (II Chr. 2:15), as well as the place from where Jonah embarked for Tarshish (Jonah 1:3).
The New Testament records Jaffa as the place where Peter recieved direct instruction to eat “unclean” animals and to share the Gospel with non-Jews (Acts 10).
