51 - On the Premises

location: Dead Sea
Translation should be: Master Jeweler on the Premises
Gemological testing on the Premises
In Hebrew "bamakom" means "on the premises / in the place of"
"bimkom" means "instead"
The Hebrew words are written with the same letters but different vowels
The sign maker probably used Google translate and not a human translator
