One of the principles upheld by the first residents of Ramat Hasharon, which was established under the name "Ir Shalom", was strict adherence to Hebrew work. That is why a regulation was amended by the Settlers’ Committee that a landowner who does not employ Hebrew workers will have the land expropriated from his ownership. In 1932-33 (the year in which the name was also changed to Ramat Hasharon)] Moshe Matalon purchased orchards in the area where the sign is located, and refused to sign the agreement. Even after he signed his consent to employ Hebrew workers, a dispute arose over the working conditions of the workers and also over the hypothesis that, despite everything, Matalon employed Arab workers. The conflict escalated into violent streaks that led to police intervention.
