“Room Tax” Poster 1948 – Imposed by the Tel-Aviv Municipality during the War of Independence

“Kofer Cheder” [Room Tax], original poster for the Tel-Aviv Municipality, created by Pesach Ir-Shai Palestine, 1948.
Signed in the upper right corner.
With the outbreak of the War of Independence, the city of Tel Aviv was flooded with thousands of refugees who escaped the battle zones. Since there were not enough houses to accommodate the refugees, masses invaded schools, synagogues, and deserted structures in the city.
In order to fund the establishment of residential units for the refugees, the Tel-Aviv Municipality imposed a “Room Tax” on the residents of the city. The tax was graded and was determined by the number of residents per apartment – the more crowded the apartment, the lower the “Room Tax” that was to be paid.
