סמל מיתוג של עיריית מודיעין מכבים רעות

דרכים עתיקות
גבעת התיתורה חולשת על שתי דרכים עתיקות וחשובות, שחיברו בין מישור החוף לירושלים. מצפון לגבעה, באיזור תל שילת וכפר רות, עובר חלקו התחתון של מעלה בית חורון, ואילו מדרום לגבעה (בתוואי שדרות עמק החולה של היום) עברה הדרך שחיברה בין לוד לירושלים.

Branding symbol of the Modiin Maccabim Reut Municipality

Ancient roads
Givat Hatitora dominates two ancient and important roads that connected the coastal plain to Jerusalem. North of the hill, in the area of Tel Shilat and Kfar Ruth, passes the lower part of Ma’ale Beit Horon, while south of the hill (along the route of today’s Emek Hahula Boulevard) is the road that connected Lod to Jerusalem.
