On the sign:
...מִי צָפַן הַקְּסָמִים בַּגְּוִילִים הַבָּלִים,
מִי נָתַן הַכֹּחַ לַאֲמָרוֹת עֲבֵשׁוֹת,
לַחְצֹב לֶהָבוֹת מִלְּבָבוֹת חֲלָלִים
וּלְהָתֵז נִיצוֹצוֹת מֵעֵינַיִם עֲשֵׁשׁוֹת?...

(חיים נחמן ביאליק)

In the current plaque appears a section of a poem by Israel’s national poet Haim Nachman Bialik (1873-1934), the diligent - about the disciples of the sages in the Lithuanian yeshiva of that time.

Three months earlier, the tiles were photographed in the same square. During the photograph, it was discovered that a number of tiles had been removed and replaced by other tiles. The current tile replaced another tile

Translation of the text on the sign:
Who hide the magic in the scrolls,
Who gave the power to moldy statements,
to carve flames from the hearts of the dead
and splashing sparks from the eyes of decay?

(Haim Nachman Bialik)
