"I did not finish school for mayor, and if I still achieved good results, then it is only through the power of action, that I did not get tired of doing it for the country and for our city Ramat Gan." Avraham Krinitzi
An elderly Jew once said of Krinitzi - : "The man took a hammer, built a city quickly, and went to eat Gefilte-Fish." It is true that it is a beautiful rhyme (in Hebrew), but it is summed up only at the tip of the fork of who was Abraham Krinitzi. A man of manual labor, who established a city of glory, who loved to eat and loved people, especially the people of his city.
Krinitzi was born in Grodno (Russia) in 1886. At the age of 15, he abandoned the "Hyder" in favor of the carpentry profession and activity in the Zionist movement - "Hapoel Hatzair". A year later, he tried to "smuggle" the border and immigrate to Israel, was apprehended by the authorities and returned to his home.
In 1905 he immigrated to Eretz Israel. Worked as a carpenter in Rishon Lezion and Jaffa. After two years, he returned to Russia and was one of the organizers of the "Jewish Self-Defense" according to the way of Zeev Jabotinsky. He returned to Israel, and was involved in settlement activities. As one of the founders of the Haganah organization, in 1921 he organized the Tel Aviv Municipal Police.
