Translation of the text on the sign:
[Photo of Judah Leib Ben-Ze’ev]

Yehuda Leib Ben-Ze’ev

Hebrew writer and editor, linguist and educator, biblical critic. He was one of the first educated and close to Moshe Mendelssohn’s students. He worked mainly in Berlin (Germany), Breslau (now Wroclaw in Poland) and Vienna (Austria). He published pioneering Hebrew grammar and syntax books, textbooks and dictionaries, which were widely distributed, such as "Hebrew Language Talmud" (1796) and "The Treasure of the Roots" (1808-1807). Thanks to his introductions to the Bible, Ben-Zev is considered one of the first critics of the Bible in modern Hebrew literature.
