In the center of the garden is a reconstruction of the first well that was excavated in place of an ancient well from the Crusader period. After water was found, it was decided to name the settlement of Beer Yaakov, Beer - after the well and Yaakov after the person who laid the cornerstone of Beer Yaakov - Rabbi Yaakov Yitzhaki Click for a larger image
