"אם תרצו אין זו אגדה"
("Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen")

"חלום ומעשה אינם שונים כל כך כפי שנוטים לחשוב, כי כל מעשי בני האדם בחלום יסודם וגם אחריתם - חלום היא ...

In the current plaque appear the well-known saying of the Jewish State Treaty Theodor Herzl (Benjamin Ze’ev Herzl) (1860-1904). Herzl, who was a journalist, writer, jurist and statesman, came up with the idea of the Jewish state after covering the Dreyfus trial as a journalist, in which a false plot was framed against a Jewish French officer. In 1902 he wrote the novel Altneuland (The Old New Land), in which he envisioned a state for the Jewish people, with institutions of government, industry and culture. On the cover page is the quote "If you want, it’s not a legend".

Translation of the text on the sign:
" If you will, it is no legend"
("Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen")

"Dream and action are not as different as one tends to think, because all human actions in the dream are their foundation and their end - a dream is ...
If you do not want, then all I have told you is a legend, and a legend will continue to be. "


(Literally: Old-New Land, translated into Hebrew: "Tel Aviv")
(Benjamin Ze’ev Theodor Herzl, 1902)
