Palm tree at #8 Nahalat Binyamin
Tabachnik received permission for almost everything he wanted. There was one exception: the municipality wouldn’t let him erect tablets on the roof bearing the Ten Commandments, insisting that these could be used only on public and religious buildings. So Tabachnik had to be satisfied with the horns of the altar, menorahs woven into the railings, and two Stars of David. There was a palm tree as well, but it was stolen some years ago and only replaced during the house’s recent restoration.
