There's another sign above it which shows part of the name of another road- the Jewish country, which is the title of another book that Theodor Herzl wrote. Between the three and Four stars on the Monument there's a slogan: Herzlia - a legend of a city, which alludes to Theodor Herzl's famous proverb: If you have a will power it [founding the country] shouldn't be a legend...
