Today, the Star of David is the premier Jewish symbol. Along with being the centerpiece on the flag of Israel, the six-pointed star (hexagram), made of two interlocking triangles, has long been a popular decorative symbol on all sorts of Judaica . One of the oldest symbols of the Jewish faith, a seven-branched Menorah was used in the Jewish Temple, where it was lit by the Kohanim every evening. Ever since the Menorah has remained a symbol of Jewish tradition, pride and glory. In addition, the Menorah is said to be a symbol of the nation of Israel and its mission to be “a light unto the nations.” (Isaiah 42:6).
