Hassan Bek Mosque in Jaffa - Israel
Hassan Bek Mosque (Hebrew: מסגד חסן בק), (Arabic: مسجد حسن بك), also known as the Hasan Bey Mosque, is considered to be one of the most well-known mosques located in Jaffa, which is now part of the Tel Aviv-Yafo municipality in Israel. It has been a site of much controversy, as demonstrated in recent years.
The Hassan Bek Mosque was built in 1916, by Jaffa’s Turkish-Arab governor of the same name. At the time, Arab Jaffa and the recently-founded Jewish-Tel-Aviv were both competitively expanding northwards and seeking to block each other, the mosque was part of Manshiye, Jaffa’s northernmost neighbourhood which spread northwards along the Mediterranean seashore.;
