It’s the year of the print.
A growing number of Israeli residents and businesses are printing their name on walls, walls, doorposts, posters, posters and other public displays in their exclusive neighborhoods.
But as the year comes to an end, it’s also an important one for the people who make it possible for them to print their names.
On Monday, Israel’s largest printmaking company, Rollo, announced that it would start selling prints in the Knesset in 2017.
The company, which produces and markets a wide range of high-quality posters and printouts, announced the plan last month after weeks of lobbying from residents and business owners in Tel Aviv’s upscale Haifa district.
Rollo said it would create 1,000 new jobs in the district in 2017 and will increase its printmaking capacity to 250,000 posters a year, up from the previous number of just over 50,000.
“We are taking the step that we thought was important,” said Elad Katz, Rollom’s chief executive officer.
“It is an investment that will have positive impact for the neighborhood.”
He added that the new jobs would be created in Tel-Aviv, where the company currently employs just 20 people.
The new jobs are expected to come to more than a dozen Israeli communities, including Haifa, the coastal city that is home to nearly 30 percent of the country’s Jews.
A number of local companies are also printing their names on the walls and doorposts in the Haifa neighborhood.
The printmaking sector is expanding in Haifa and other areas in Tel, which have historically been heavily Jewish-run, as the Jewish population of Tel Aviv and other Jewish communities has been declining in recent years.
It’s also becoming increasingly popular in the Israeli capital’s ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods, particularly around the HaIFA shopping district and the Beit Shemesh settlement in the southern part of the city.
The Haifa area is home, in part, to the Haavara settlement, which is home not only to the Jewish settlement of Shearim, but also to the largest number of ultra-orthodox Jews in the country.
It is estimated that nearly half of all Haifa residents are ultra-Othodox.
The two communities share a common border that stretches for 1,600 kilometers, making it one of the largest Jewish enclaves in the world.
Many residents of Haifa are wary of the idea of having their names printed on the buildings and walls of the community, as it would not be part of a normal building.
And they say that it is unlikely that the people would even know the company was printing their identities, since the names of many of their friends are also printed on walls.
Katz, who is also the chief executive of the Haaretz newspaper, said that the company would use a printer in the region that has been approved by the local council to print its name on its own walls and doors.
The printed name would also be used in promotional materials and posters for the company’s new printmaking facility, Rollogate, which he described as an “incredibly powerful” new initiative.
The facility will produce approximately 500,000 printouts a year and will be in place by the end of the year.
The next phase of the initiative will include expanding the printing capacity of the company to 250 million posters a day.
“In 2017, we plan to expand our printmaking to 500 million posters daily, a huge amount for a small community,” Katz said.
“This is a very important milestone for us and a very good one for us as a company.”
Katz added that Rollo had already decided to increase its staff to 300 people by the beginning of the new year.
“The new employees will be the people responsible for printing our names,” he said.
In Haifa in particular, the community of Shema has long been an epicenter of the printed identity debate.
The area was home to a Jewish enclave for many generations before the arrival of the immigrants who established the neighborhood.
A large number of people in Ha’amas community, which includes the majority of Ha’as ultra- Orthodox Jews, say that the printed name should not be printed on a building in the area.
They say that, in a democratic society, the right to be heard should not trump the right of others to print on the building.
“They should be allowed to make their own decisions and their own choices,” said Rabbi Shlomo Gershon, a member of the Rabbinical Council of Israel, referring to the residents of the area who support the printed names.
The residents of Shemadon, a small Jewish enclave in the city of Ashkelon, also argue that the name should be printed in their neighborhood.
“My daughter’s name is printed on her home’s wall, but it’s not printed on my name,” said Shlomit Gershon, who heads the community’s board of trustees. “And I don
