במו ידיו
"לא גמרתי בית-ספר לראש-עיר, ואם בכל זאת הגעתי להישגים טובים, הרי אין זה אלא בכח המעשה, שלא עיפתי מלעשותו למען הארץ ולמען עירנו רמת-גן". אברהם קריניצי

אמר פעם על קריניצי יהודי קשיש: "האיש לקח פטיש, בנה עיר חיש, והלך לאכול גפילטע-פיש". נכון שזה חרוז יפה, אבל הוא מתמצת רק על קצה קצהו של המזלג את מי שהיה אברהם קריניצי. איש עמל כפיים, שהקים עיר לתפארת, שאהב לאכול ואהב אנשים, במיוחד את אנשי עירו.
קריניצי נולד בגרודנו (רוסיה) בשנת 1886. בהיותו בן 15 נטש את ה"חיידר" לטובת מקצוע הנגרות ופעילות בתנועה הציונית - "הפועל הצעיר". שנה לאחר מכן ניסה "להבריח" את הגבול ולעלות ארצה, נתפס ע"י השלטונות והוחזר לביתו.
ב-1905 עלה לארץ ישראל. עבד כנגר בראשון לציון וביפו. לאחר שנתיים חזר לרוסיה והיה בין מארגני "ההגנה העצמית היהודית" כשותף לדרך עם זאב ז’בוטינסקי.חזר ארצה, והיה מעורב בפעילות ההתיישבותית. כאחד מראשוני ארגון "ההגנה", ב-1921 אירגן את המשטרה העירונית של תל-אביב

Translation of the text on the sign:
Ramat Gan city symbol

With his own hands
"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 Ze’ev 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.
