On the sign:
בית וחצר משפחת יהלום
כאן היה ביתם של בנימין ואלקה יהלום, שנבנה על ידיהם בשנת תרפ"ז (1927).
היה זה הבית הראשון בכפר-גנים.
משפחת יהלום נאחזה בקרקע, על אף הבדידות, הסכנה, חוסר מים ושאר שירותים.
רק כעבור שנתיים החלו להגיע המתיישבים הראשונים והחלה לצמוח המושבה כפר-גנים.
קניית הקרקע על ידי בנימין יהלום, איפשרה את הקמת המושבה כפר-גנים.
בנימין כיהן כמוכתר המושבה. הוא היה מוסמך לרבנות, אך עסק בגאולת קרקעות, בחקלאות ובהנהגת המושבה הצעירה.
בנימין יהלום שהיה חתנו של הרב אריה לייב פרומקין ממייסדי המושבה פתח-תקווה, נולד בט’ בטבת תרל"ב (1872) ונפטר בט"ז באלול תשי"ח (1958) בגיל 86. רעייתו אלקה נולדה בשנת תר"ל (1870) ונפטרה בשנת תש"ה (1945), בגיל 75.

Translation of the text on the sign:

Yahalom family home and yard
Here was the home of Benjamin and Elka Yahalom, built by them in 1927.
It was the first house in Kfar Ganim.
The Yahalom family clung to the land, despite the loneliness, danger, lack of water and other services.
Only two years later did the first settlers begin to arrive and the Kfar Ganim colony began to grow.
The purchase of the land by Benjamin Yahalom enabled the establishment of the Kfar Ganim colony.
enjamin served as the Mukhtar of the colony. He was ordained a rabbi, but engaged in land redemption, agriculture and the leadership of the young colony.
Benjamin Yahalom, who was the son-in-law of Rabbi Aryeh Leib Frumkin, one of the founders of the Petah Tikva colony, was born on the 9th of Tevet, 1872, and died on the 16th of Elul, 1958, at the age of 86. His wife, Elka, was born in 1870 and died. In 1945, at the age of 75.
