On the sign:
מרכזיית הטלפון
בתחילת שנות ה-60 הוקמה מרכזיה בה עבדו חברות וחברים במשמרות מ-7 בבוקר עד 9 בערב. חברים שקיבלו שיחות מהארץ או מחו"ל מצאו את שמם על לוח המודעות ל’צלצול חוזר’ או שקיבלו ’תקציר הודעה’ בכתב.
לשיחות חוץ הועבר הקו לחדר הסמוך ומשם נוהלה השיחה.
"גיפת פרנר שלום" במבטא ייקי, היה סימן ההיכר של המרכזייה שעברה ל"אסם" בסוף שנות ה-80.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Telephone switchboard
In the early 1960s, a switchboard was set up where members of the Kibutz worked on shifts from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Members who received calls from Israel or from abroad found their name on the billboard for ’dial back’ or received a ’brief summary’ in writing.
For outside calls, the line was moved to the next room and from there the call was conducted.
The "Givat Brenner Shalom" in the Yekke accent was the hallmark of the switchboard that moved to the "Osem" on the late 1980s.
