This is a sign at the entry to the house where my parents lived 70 years ago at 39 Zefania Street, Jerusalem. I would like to know what this sign says/means.
Thanks

Worlwide enterprise introducing memorization and repetition among the Torah scholars
8/22/2016 4:01 PM Hello Michael,

While it does not make sense to me, here is a translation of the remaining three lines of the Hebrew text: (you might check further on Google Translate).
המפעל העולמי להחדרת שינון וחזרה בקרב לומדי התורה

"Global factory introduce constant review in the Torah scholars"

Also, at the bottom to the right of the number, the Hebrew translates to "Hoffstein" or "Hoffshstein".

Perhaps someone else can shed some more light on this.....Jo

All the necessary light was shed by the first responder.

8/23/2016 1:58 AM "The Worldwide Enterprise" is a good translation. The rest should read "for the encouragement of repetition and review among students of the the Torah".
8/23/2016 5:32 AM VASHINANTAM - "AND THOU SHALT TEACH THEM" diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. is a word taken from th 1ST part ot the "Shema Israel" (Deuteronomy 6/7).
