The Star of David known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David is a generally recognized symbol of modern Jewish identity and Judaism.. The identification of the term “Star of David” or “Shield of David” dates to the 17th century. The term “Shield of David” is also used in the Siddur (Jewish prayer book) as a title of the God of Israel.

Sh’ma Yisrael‎: Translated “Hear, O Israel” is from Deuteronomy 6:4–9 and is also a Jewish prayer which serves as a centerpiece in Jewish prayer services. Observant Jews consider the Sh’ma to be the most important part of the prayer service, It is also traditional for Jews to say the Shema as their last words, and for parents to teach their children to say it before they go to sleep at night.

The verse is translated as “The LORD is our God; the LORD is one” The word used for “the LORD” is the tetragrammaton YHWH.

Eilat Stone
or in Hebrew “Even Eilat” is is the national Stone of Israel and is called “Eilat Stone” this due to the city of Eilat where it is mined. It is a green-blue mixture of varuous copper minerals mostly malachite, azurite, turquoise. Sometimes it is also known as the King Solomon Stone, and we think that’s pretty cool!
