On the sign:
שִׁיר לָאוֹהֲבִים הַנְבוֹנִים
אָשֶׁר בִּתְבוּנָה יֹאהֲבוּ.
יְמֵיהֶם בַּנְעִימִים יַחְלְפוּ,
גַם בְּרִדְתָם שְׁאוֹל לֹא יַזְקִינוּ,
נֵצַח לֹא יִפָּרְדוּ, יָחַד יִחְיוּ
בְּבַיִת אֶחָד.

נתן זך,
שִׁיר לָאוֹהֲבִים הַנְבוֹנִים , 1982

Three months later, the same square was photographed, during that action it was discovered that a number of pavements had been removed and other pavements had been placed in their place. In this tile the design is different, see the other tile Click for a larger image

Translation of the text on the sign:
A song for wise lovers
Which wisely will love.
Their pleasant days will be replaced,
Even when they go down to hell they will not be old,
Eternity will not separate, together will live
In one house.

Nathan Zach,
A Song for Wise Lovers, 1982
