On the sign:
בנקודה זו בתאריך 14 ליולי 2012 שרף עצמו משה סילמן ז"ל למוות, כאות מחאה על השפל החברתי בו מצויים עניים במדינת ישראל.
אות זה הוא תזכורת לכל אזרחי מדינת ישראל להמשיך לשאוף ולחתור למציאות בה לכל אדם תהיה הזדמנות מלאה לחיים בכבוד, בשובע, בבריאות ותחת קורת גג.

"וכי ימוך אחיך ומטה ידו עמך והחזקתה בו גר ותושב וחי עמך:"
ויקרא כ"ה, לה

In 2011, there was a widespread social protest in Israel, the "tent protest," which focused on high prices, especially housing prices (and cottage cheese). As part of this protest, tent camps were set up throughout the country (mainly on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv), and huge demonstrations were held.
Moshe Silman, who suffered from financial problems, was active in this protest. On the anniversary of the protest he set himself on fire in front of the media cameras as a sign of protest. He died of his wounds.

Translation of the text on the sign:
At this point on July 14, 2012, the late Moshe Silman burned himself to death, as a sign of protest against the social depression in which the poor are in the State of Israel.
This letter is a reminder to all citizens of the State of Israel to continue to strive for a reality in which every person will have a full opportunity to live with dignity, satiety, health and under one roof.

"And if thy brother be waxen poor, and his means fail with thee; then thou shalt uphold him: as a stranger and a settler shall he live with thee:"
Leviticus 25, 35
