On the cover:
שְׁלֹשָׁה כְּתָרִים יֶשְׁנָם בָּעוֹלָם,
כֶּתֶר וְכֶתֶר וְזִיווֹ שֶׁלּוֹ:
כֶּתֶר שֶׁל גְּבוּרָה,
כֶּתֶר שֶׁל תּוֹרָה
וְכֶתֶר שֶׁל יֹפִי – כֶּתֶר שֶׁל נוֹי...

שֶׁבַח לְכִתְּרָהּ שֶׁל גְּבוּרָה בָּעוֹלָם!
תְּהִלָּה לְכֶתֶר שֶׁל תּוֹרָה לְעוֹלָם!
וְכֶתֶר שֶׁל יֹפִי מִי יַעֲרָךְ לוֹ?

(שאול טשרניחובסקי, 1923)

The tiles in Antin Square, which is located at the entrance to Tel Aviv University, include covertions and comments by scientists and other intellectuals.

In the current tile are the first and last lines of Saul Tchernichovsky’s poem - three crowns.

Three months earlier, the tiles were photographed in the same square. During the photograph, it was discovered that a number of tiles had been removed and replaced by other tiles . In this tile the design is different, see the other tile Click for cover's details

Translation of the text on the sign:
There are three crowns in the world
Crown and crown and his crown
Crown of heroism,
Crown of Torah
And a crown of beauty - a crown of ornamental
Praise to the crown of heroism in the world!
Glory to the crown of Torah to the world!
And a crown of beauty Who will hold him?

(Shaul Tchernichovsky, 1923)
