כיכר המייסדים

כיכר המייסדים לזכרם של פייגה וראובן לרר הוקמה במקום זה כאות הוקרה והערכה לפועלם, נחישותם ועוז רוחם של ראשוני המתיישבים בוואדי אל חנין.

הכיכר והמזרקה שבטבורה ניצבות על אדמת נחלת ראובן לרר, במקום בו הייתה בעת עלייתם לקרקע בשנת 1883 אחת הבארות שנחפרה לפני מאות שנים ושימשה לזמן מה את אחד השח’ים המקומיים.

מבאר זו נשאו ראשוני נס ציונה שהתגוררו ברחובות הסמוכים מים בכדים ובפחים לצורכי ביתם. הבאר שופצה מאוחר יותר ע"י הפרדסן רטנר שעשה בה שימוש להשקיית פרדסו.

כיכר לרר מנקזת את התנועה הרבה של הרחובות ששמותיהם מבטאים קשר היסטורי, ארצי ומקומי: "ויצמן", "הרצל", "רוטשילד", "עמק השושנים", "תל אביב", "ביל"ו" ו"המניין הראשון".

הכיכר משמשת אתר הנצחה למייסדיה של נס ציונה, בשל מרכזיותו של המקום בהיסטוריה של המושבה שצמחה והתפתחה מנחלה משפחתית לעיר משגשגת בישראל, וכציון למעשה הייחוד שבייסוד "נחלת ראובן".

Translation of the text on the sign:
The Flag trail
Founders Square

The founders’ square in memory of Feige and Reuven Lerer was established in this place as a token of appreciation and appreciation for the work, determination and courage of the first settlers in Wadi al-Hanin.

The square and the fountain at its center stand on the land of Reuven Lerer, where it was at a time when it reached the ground in 1883, one of the wells that was excavated centuries ago and used for a while by one of the local sha’ikim.

From this well, the early Ness Ziona people who lived in the nearby streets carried water in pitchers and bins for their home. The well was later renovated by the orchard man Ratner who used it for watering the orchard.

Lerer Square drains much of the traffic of the streets whose names express historical, national and local connections: "Weizman", "Herzl", "Rothschild", "Valley of the Roses", "Tel Aviv", "Bilu" and "the first minyan".

The square serves as a memorial site to the founders of Ness Ziona, due to the centrality of the place in the history of the colony that grew and developed from a family estate to a prosperous city in Israel, and as a matter of fact the uniqueness of the "Nahalat Reuven".
