Ramat Gan city symbol HaKeshet Street
Until 1968, Sharett Street was called HaKeshet (Arc) Street, because of its arched shape. The name was then changed to Sharet Street after Moshe Sharet, the foreign minister and prime minister of Israel.
Sharet Street and its extensions (Hapersa St. and Zar St.) reflect more than any other street in Ramat Gan the history of the city and the independence of the state.
The residents who lived on Keshet Street probably remember the night of August 15, 1948, when they were immediately asked to leave their homes in order to move the Defense Headquarters to this area. The families evacuated without any complaints, without prior preparations, without pressure and without police. Citizens for the State, for the Purpose and for Victory in the War. Zionism.
