Where even the street signs teach history (correction)

Some of the street signs in Jerusalem explain the name of the street.

Nahum Lifschitz was an agricultural scientist who made contributions to the field of herbicides.

How many other countries in the region would honor someone like that?

UPDATE: I got the wrong Lifshitz. Commentary 101 in the comments notes that this one was a pioneer in the publishing industry. I didn't do the research properly I blame a severe lack of sleep :)
