On the sign:
"שכונת מולדת"
שכונת מולדת הוקמה בפסח תרצ"ד (1934). כתשעים משפחות של עולי תימן התיישבו באזור. הם הקימו מספר צריפי עץ, בית כנסת ומקווה טהרה. במשך השנים הראשונות נאבקו המתיישבים בבידוד ובריחוק. בים החולות שהקיפם, במחסור הכבד ובאבטלה.

אדמות האזור.נרכשו על ידי חברת "המזרח" בשנת 1930. הרוכשים בקשו להקים במרחב החולות עיר שתקרא "מנורה". מגרשים רבים נמכרו ליהודים בחו"ל, הללו מעולם לא בנו כאן את ביתם.

במולדת ואזורה היה מרכז האימונים של ארגון "ההגנה", בבתים רבים היו סליקים של נשק.

בשל הפיתוח האיטי. הבידוד ותנאי החיים הקשים ננטשו אט אט בתי מולדת, והשכונה נעלמה מנוף העיר חולון.

Translation of the text on the sign:

Moledet neighborhood
The Moledet neighborhood was established on Passover 1934. About ninety families of Yemeni immigrants settled in the area. They established a number of wooden barracks, a synagogue and a mikveh tehara.
For the first few years the settlers struggled with isolation and alienation. In the sea of ​​sands that surrounded them, in heavy scarcity and unemployment.

The lands of the area. Purchased by the "Mizrach" company in 1930. The buyers wanted to establish a city in the sand area that would be called "Menora". Many plots were sold to Jews abroad, these never built their home here.

In the "Moledet " and "Azura" was the training center of the "Hagana" organization, in many houses there were weapons slicks.

Due to the slow development. The isolation and difficult living conditions were slowly abandoned in their hometowns, and the neighborhood disappeared from the view of the city of Holon.
