Description About the artist Shipping info

Dorit Klein, a 7th generation Israeli with roots in Jerusalem, speaks for every Jew with this laser cut stainless steel wall plaque decoration. In the center is a picture of Old City Jerusalem and around are engraved the immortal words from Psalms, “If I forget thee o’ Jerusalem, let my right hand lose its strength.” We recommend this as a gift that will inspire and give pleasure for many years.

After the Destruction of the Temple, our Sages introduced various practices to ensure that we will always remember Jerusalem. At wedding celebrations, we break a glass to demonstrate that without Jerusalem our joy is not complete. When we build a new home we leave a square unplastered to remind us of Jerusalem. Throughout the ages, all over the world, Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Is there another nation in history that has kept the memory of its home so fresh and vibrant for almost two thousand years?

Size: Diameter: 30 cm / 11.8 in
