The gallery is literally her home with art everywhere! If you like modern art and unusual art, this is the place to see. Her library shows an eclectic selection of books, her kitchen is just fabulous and the patio is a true gem.

If you walk in Old Jaffa's lanes and come across This tiny place, pop in to look at the creations of this very very creative lady . Ilana Goor did the sculpture of the woman looking at the sea in Hayarkon street.

If you are in Jaffa, don't miss this modern pearl located just in the center of the old city. The museum is always fascinating , fresh and captivating. Don't miss the balcony, it has the best view in Jaffa. Highly recommended.
