Description

Two important symbols of Judaism come together to adorn this attractive and meaningful pendant, that would make a wonderful bar or bat mitzvah gift. The Ten Commandments are a list of religious and moral imperatives which, according to Biblical tradition, were written by God and given to Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of two stone tablets during the Exodus. They feature prominently in Judaism and Christianity.

The Star of David (Magen David in Hebrew, Shield of David, Solomon's Seal, or Seal of Solomon) is a generally recognized symbol of Judaism and Jewish identity. It is also known colloquially as the Jewish Star. Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism) makes use of this sign, arranging the Ten Sephiroth (sefirot, spheres) in it. The Magen David is also featured on the flag of Israel.

Further historical note: The phrase "Ten Commandments" generally refers to the very similar passages in Exodus and Deuteronomy. Some distinguish between this "Ethical Decalogue" and a series of ten commandments in Exodus 34 that are labelled the "Ritual Decalogue".

This pendant is made of 925 sterling silver and would be a joy to own.

Size of the pendant 1.6cm/0.6inch
