On the cover:
...מִי צָפַן הַקְּסָמִים בַּגְּוִילִים הַבָּלִים,
מִי נָתַן הַכֹּחַ לַאֲמָרוֹת עֲבֵשׁוֹת,
לַחְצֹב לֶהָבוֹת מִלְּבָבוֹת חֲלָלִים
וּלְהָתֵז נִיצוֹצוֹת מֵעֵינַיִם עֲשֵׁשׁוֹת?...

(חיים נחמן ביאליק)

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

In the current tile is a section of Bialik’s poem - the diligent - about the talmidei hakhamim in the Lithuanian yeshivas of that period.

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. The current tile replaced another tile

Translation of the text on the cover:
Who hide the magic in the scrolls,
Who gave the power to moldy statements,
to carve flames from the hearts of the dead
and splashing sparks from the eyes of decay?

(Haim Nachman Bialik)
