בבית זה ביום ג’ באלול תרצ"ה (1 בספטמבר 1935), נפטר הרב אברהם יצחק הכהן קוק זצ"ל. הרב קוק ייסד את הרבות הראשית לארץ ישראל, והיה הרב הראשי הראשון שעמד בראשה בשנים תרפ"א-תרצ"ה (1921-1935). הוא היה המייסד וראש ישיבת מרכז-הרב, ומגדולי מנהיגי האומה של המאה האחרונה.
הבניין שימש כבית הבראה של ד"ר זלינגר, בו שהה הרב קוק במשך חודשי הקיץ האחרונים של חייו עד לפטירתו, ימים ספורים לפני שמלאו לו 70.

Translation of the text on the sign:
[The Hebrew version is more detailed]
In this house on Tuesday, September 1, 1935, the late Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook passed away. Rabbi Kook founded the Chief Rabbinate of Eretz Yisrael, and was the first Chief Rabbi to head it in 1921-1935. He was the founder and head of the Merkaz Harav yeshiva, and one of the greatest leaders of the nation of the last century.
The building served as Dr. Zellinger’s convalescent home, where Rabbi Kook stayed for the last summer months of his life until his death, a few days before he turned 70.
