Herzliya, named after Theodore Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism, is a city near the Meditteranean coast of Israel with a population of approximately 100,000 people.  The city, located in the Sharon area of Israel, is 15 kilometers north of Tel Aviv and is spread over 26,000 acres.  Herzliya has grown from it's humble beginnings as a Moshava in 1924 to become one of Israel's largest cities.

In a quality of life survey in 2008, Herzliya ranked second highest among Israel's 15 largest cities.  Investment in education was higher than all other cities in the survey and more high school students were eligible for a bagrut matriculation certificate.  The Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) is an upscale, private college that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in government, business administration, law, computer science and other academic disciplines.

According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, residents of Herzliya are among the wealthiest in Israel, due in large part to the wealthy residents of Herzliya Pituach

Herzliya also hosts the annual Herzliya Conference.  The Herzliya Conference has become an annual summit of the most influential Israeli and international leaders. The conference is attended by government ministers, Knesset members, senior defense officials, leaders of the Israeli business community, senior academicians, media representatives from Israel and abroad, delegates of world Jewish organizations, foreign dignitaries and Israeli diplomats.
