Jerusalem Stone Pendant with 'Shalom Al Yisrael' Synagogue Motif
Alluring and unique, this sterling silver pendant is shaped in a rectangle and clasps Jerusalem stone with an engraving of the Menorah, Lulav and Shofar emblem of the 'Shalom Al Yisrael' synagogue of Jericho.
The "Shalom Al Yisrael" synagogue of Jericho was discovered in 1936 as part of excavations by D.C. Baramki of the Antiquities Authority under the British Mandate. The 10 by 13 meter mosaic floor was identified as a synagogue due to its image of the Ark of the Law-Aron HaKodesh, a menorah, a shofar and lulav, and a Hebrew inscription reading "Shalom Al Yisrael", or "Peace Upon Israel" - from which the synagogue derives its name. Keep Jerusalem close to your heart with this gorgeous sterling silver chain box and pendant made with authentic and certified Jerusalem stone. The beauty of the Jerusalem stone is its unique limestone color which glows like gold when the sun reflects off it and hence Jerusalem is known to be the city of gold.This would make a sentimental gift for any occasion.
