Next to this sign is another sign describing the new structure and its restoration, which states:
The "Kol Israel Haverim"
"Alliance" Boys’ School
The School was founded in Jaffa in 1889 by the "Bilu" Israel Belkind. Due to budget restrains the "Hovevei Tzion" And "Kol Israel Haverim" associations joined together and opened a boys’ school, with Meir Angel as headmaster. In 1902 the associations separated, and in 1908 the "Kol Israel Haverim" association erected the boys’ school on this site.
During the years of struggle for the establishment of the State of Israel, the school served as a centre of activity for the "Irgum Tzvai Leumi" ("etzel").
The school ceased functioning in 1976.
In 1989 the original facade of the building was restored, and on the joint initiative of the Dellal Family, the Tel Aviv Foundation, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, and the Ministry of Culture and Education, the present building was renovated as part of the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre.
