The emblem of the city of Petah Tikva Yard of Daniel Lifshitz
Daniel Lifshitz, nicknamed "Dana", was one of the first Bialystok settlers to join the people of Petah Tikva in Judea in 1883 and later immigrated to settle in the colony.
He was a renowned engineer and a man with knowledge in many fields.
Among the important buildings he designed in the colony was the Great Synagogue located further down Hovevei Zion Street.
The Lifshitz family raised larvae for the silk industry, and in the basement of the building that stood in the farm yard, the larvae were raised and kept.
Citrus trees, vineyards and almond groves were also planted.
The complex included a building facing the front of the street, with an arch that supported the building and was used beyond the large courtyard. This arch is the only one of its kind in the courtyards of the peasants of the Judean colonies, left over from the period of the first aliyah.
In the courtyard stands another two-story building, built of kurkar stones. This building was built as an orphanage but served as a hotel and its rooms were rented to the homeless in the colony.
