On the sign:
תמר מצוי
Phoenix dactylifera

תפוצה טבעית: צפון אפריקה, המזרח התיכון, ישראל

הגזע חסר קליפה והוא עטוף בבסיסי וסיבי העלים הישנים. התמר הוא אחד מ"שבעת המינים", הוא נושא בראשו "כפות" שהם בעצם עלים ארוכים המשמשים לסכך ולולבים. העץ שלפניכם הוא זכר, ולכן אינו נושא פירות.

[הפאה השנייה של הקוביה]
[The second face of the cube]
Date Palm
Phoenix dactylifera

Natural range: N. Africa, Middle East, Israel

The bases of old leaves, not bark, cover the palm’s unique trunk. One of Israel’s honored "Seven Species," its leaves serve as both lulav and succah covering. As this particular tree is a male, it bears no fruit.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
מי גבוה יותר, עלה עץ תמר או אתה?

[a question]
Which is taller, a date palm leaf, or you?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
לפני שתשווה בין גובה העלה לבין הגובה שלך, דע שבתמר, כל עלה כולל עורק מרכזי ירוק עם הרבה עלעלים צדדיים. הוא נוצר, צומח ומת כיחידה אחת. כעת תוכל לענות על השאלה.

[The Answer to the question]
Before comparing your height with that of a palm leaf, realize that a whole frond (lulav) with its central, green shaft and many green side leaflets comprises one leaf; it is born, grows, dies and falls as a single unit. Knowing this, you can answer the question.
