Clockwork Orange: The restoration of Tel Aviv's Templer colony clock
For more than 130 years, a carillon clock adorned the front of the Beit Hava’ad building in Sarona, Tel Aviv’s Templer colony. Thanks to a fervent preservationist, visitors will be able to hear the clock chime again
Mordechai Geva’s beautiful house in Moshav Rinatya, halfway between Petah Tikva and Yehud, is a shrine to clocks. And with each clock comes a marvelous tale. “It’s a love story that goes back many years. Come on in and I’ll show how it all began,” he says when we visit him at his adjacent workshop, where he is currently repairing the famous clock of the Sarona Templer colony in Tel Aviv.
