On the sign:
החיים בשכונת מולדת
"מולדת עיר העתיד כך חשבו
זה יהיה המרכז בו תהיה העיר המתחרה לתל אביב.
באותה תקופה מגרש במולדת היה יקר יותר ממגרש בבן יהודה בתל אביב"
(מאיר צובארי מראשוני שכונת מולדת, ימי חול, 2000)

"הבריטים חשדו כי במולדת נמצא נשק בלתי חוקי. עלינו הילדים הוטלה משימה לפזר מסמרים בכל שטח חולות מולדת. שבוע ימים הסתובבו הבריטים מחפשים סליקים בחולות. הגלאים צפצפו אבל אף סליק לא נתגלה. הוטלה עלינו גם המשימה לשמש כצופים, כשהיו חברי "ההגנה" מתאמנים, הוטל עלינו להודיע להם אם האנגלים מתקרבים בעזרת מורס ודגלים"
(מאיר צובארי מראשוני שכונת מולדת, ימי חול, 2000)

Translation of the text on the sign:

Life in the Moledet neighborhood
"Moledet the city of the future," they thought
It will be the center where the city competing with Tel Aviv will be.
At that time, a plot of land in Moledet was more expensive than a plot of land in Ben Yehuda in Tel Aviv. "
(Meir Tzubari from the first of the Moledet neighborhood, weekdays, 2000)

"The British suspected that illegal weapons had been found in the homeland. The children were given the task of scattering nails all over the area of ​​the homeland. For a week the British went around looking for slicks in the sands. The detectors beeped but no slick was discovered. We were also given the task of serving as scouts, when the members of the Haganah were training, we were told to let them know if the English were approaching with the help of Morse and flags. "
(Meir Tzubari from the first of the Moledet neighborhood, weekdays, 2000)
