Translation of the text on the sign:
Tent neighborhood in the early 1930s
In the summer of 1933, one year after the aliyah on the ground the kibbutz was given a name: Givat Haim - after Haim Arlozorov. The community already had 120 members, 16 children, 15 barracks, one concrete building for children - and lots of tents.
