Driving on one of Israel’s main highways, it is impossible to miss Uri Lifschitz’s (1936-2011) imposing cut-out metal silhouette of Theodor Herzl atop a water tank at the Sira Intersection entering Herzliya. Based on an iconic image of Herzl, it is visible from both directions, and the sky shows through the cut-out. This image of Herzl, at the entrance to the city named after him and surrounded by skyscrapers and modern housing, brings to life his famous aphorism: “If you will it, it is no dream.” (Image by Dr. Avishai Teicher, own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons)
