Three names and eras are combined in the name of this town on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

Kiryat Yearim is where the Holy Ark was brought after its return from Philistine captivity (Shmuel I, 7:1-2) and where it remained for 20 years until it was brought to Jerusalem by King David (Divrei Hayamim I, 13:5-8).

Near this Biblical site is the town which was established by the heads of Yeshivat Telz, which was transplanted from Lithuania to Cleveland, through the generosity of the great philanthropist Irving Stone. (Mr. Stone, the head of Cleveland-based American Greetings, passed away this month. May his memory be blessed.)

Telz Stone is a religious community with many residents from the USA and South Africa and with a number of religious educational institutions, plus a renowned Beit Hachlama convalescent home for mothers following birth.
