    Great, thanks very much to both. You have solved the mystery. I was thinking that it
    might be a dealer name, would not have guessed a driving school. I guess we can
    speculate that the driving school had a fleet of Studebakers?

    Additional input

    I work with an Israeli engineer and asked him to translate. Here is what he said:

    It spells "Lark" in Hebrew where the image is and on the other side it gives the name address and phone number of a driving school by the name of "Hama'avir" which translate to "the mover" or the one who will "pass you" meaning pass the driving test.

    Here's a translation. Yes this is written in 'original' Hebrew. Hebrew is more commonly written now in Latin characters.
    My friend could tell it was quite old, based on the 6 digit phone number. Also it's from Haifa, which was the city the assembly plant was in. No surprise there I guess.

    And Yiddish is rather closely related to the "Pennsylvania Dutch" that the Amish speak to boot.

    Ever wonder how to spell "Studebaker" in Hebrew?...

    Zaharaim Tovim Richard,
    I work for an Israeli company. I emailed a guy for a translation, but probably won't hear back until tomorrow.
    (Had I know I would be here 14 years and counting, I'd would have learned a bit more hebrew..)

    My guess is that the yiddish on the front says Lark.

    This is an original key fob that I am guessing is from Israel (1964). Does anyone else have one of these in their collection? Can anyone decipher the printing on the reverse side? For more on the Israeli assembly plant see the Jan. 2012 TW article by Amon Wirthiem (and Art Unger) on page 16-17.
