A month later, in April 1887, Baron Rothschild came to Palestine. He met with Hirsch and Osowicki at Mikveh Israel, and then visited the Holy places in Jerusalem and arrived in Rishon LeZion. People arranged a magnificent reception here, on this avenue, and, with a sinking heart, waited for what would happen next. Rothschild promised to continue financial support, even promised "at the request of Osovitsky" to transfer him to another settlement but put one condition. Rishon LeZion will leave none other than ... Yosef Feinberg. "You got me pulled in this case," said Rothschild to Feinberg, "You are responsible for it. Sell your plot and leave." Feinberg tried to resist and fight the "Baron” but was left on his own. Being under public pressure he wrote in his diary: "I'm leaving Rishon LeZion only for its benefit," Joseph went to Jaffa. His brother Boris went to Russia. Another brother, Lelik, his wife, who was a sister of Belknid, the founder of the Biluim, and other Biluim members based a new settlement called Gadera on the South. Yosef Feinberg tried to establish the production of olive oil in Lod using the money he got on selling his plot but went bankrupt and worked as a cab driver in Jaffa. In 1902, twenty years after his arrival in Palestine and the foundation of Rishon LeZion, at the age of 47, he died seriously ill in Jericho, at the Dead Sea. In a year before his death, Yosef Feinberg had a daughter Dora. We will learn about her fate later.

Rishon leZion. This is where it all began. This is not just an expression – this is history.

This is a special tour and a unique route. Its difference from the usual city tour is that your mobile phone is the guide. As in every excursion, it takes time to get used to the tour guide, his style, rhythm and pathways. The only difference is that in this case, you are the storyteller, you are walking yourself and set the pace for yourself - all according to your style. Just give yourself time to get used to it and you will come to life with a story full of the vicissitudes of the lives of real people, a story about their joys and sorrows, a story in which urban legends rise from the past, instill hope and simply sums up: here it all began.
