Comments:
A sign of the Jerusalem "The Built Heritage" series, a project initiated by architectural historian David Kroyanker in 1993, in which buildings of historic value were commemorated in central Jerusalem.
The signs were designed by Harel Designers Office, and the logo is in the form of a relief of a rosette window ("Rosetta").

Note: In some of the signs in this series, the Arabic text is covered with glue. This may have been done for political reasons by elements who oppose the use of the Arabic language.
