Sir Alfred Mond (1868-1930), the first Lord Melchett, was the initiator of the settlement in the Tel Mond bloc.
The monument, made by the sculptor Batya Lishansky, was built in the form of a portrait of Alfred Mond. The body rises to a height of 9 meters, made of planed Jerusalem stone. The hand raised to the sky invites the Jews of the world to come to the plantation area, as an expression of hope that the Lords dream will come true.
The sentence written on the basis of the statue is taken from Isaiah 56, 5:
"Even unto them will I give in My house and within My walls a monument and a memorial better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting memorial, that shall not be cut off."
In the month of Nissan in 1932, the foundation for the monument was laid. In the month of Sivan in 1934, the unveiling ceremony of the monument was held in the presence of members of the Lords family, a large crowd from the bloc, the countrys leaders and the Zionist movement.
