Unity in Am Yisrael

Minna, Bet Shemesh   מינה, בית שמש

As described by Minna: this block was inspired by the “choshen”, a breastplate with 12 jewels, each representing one of the 12 Tribes of Israel. It was worn by the High Priest in the Temple, and was used as a way to communicate with God.

I chose this design to symbolize both the unity of Israel (the names of all the tribes of Israel were inscribed on the “choshen”), and the power of our relationship with God.
