obviously telling of its importance
Will someone please translate, especially the Hebrew line in quotations
Yesterday, I decided on taking some morning walk at the Hayarkon Park along Bnei Dan Street in Tel Aviv. Just on the area of the park near the Philippine Embassy in Tel Aviv, I chanced upon this 100 year old tree. I say 100 years old because the number is indicated in the Hebrew sign, obviously referring to the tree’s age. This is as far as I can guess. Perhaps the sign tells about the species of the tree, and its significance. I want to know more, so I stopped one bike rider to solicit a quick translation. Well, he said the sign is about “Respecting the elderly as they deserve such treatment.” I tried to ask for a more detailed translation, but he says it’s difficult to translate it in English. Perhaps anyone here can help? I feel a little sad about the tree because it looks lifeless to me, with all the leaves already gone and barks shedding off. I am sure that the poor thing that's almost devoid of life is being kept and preserved because of its historical importance.
