The story: On 15 Av 5642, corresponding to 31 July 1882, being foundation day, some of Rishon LeZion’s founders erred on their way to their land. Instead of reachirg the settlement’s hill, currently the location known as Kikar Hameyasdim (Founders’ Square) they reached a steep hill topped by an ancient sycomorus. This is currently in the Founders section of the Ganei Ester Cemetery.
