SILVER STAR OF DAVID PENDANT
The Star (Shield)
of David, also called Magen David, is a relatively new Jewish
symbol. Supposedly, it represents the shape of King David's shield
(but there is no rabbinic support for that claim). The symbol
is very rare in early Jewish literature.
Is there any
theological significance to the symbol? Some claim that the top
triangle strives upward, toward G-d, while the lower triangle
strives downward, toward the real world.
