The olive tree is considered a symbol of peace. The dove brought Noah an olive-leaf after the flood, to show that peace had been restored. Since then, olive leaves symbolize the hope for peace.
The State of Israel chose the olive leaves around the Menorah as its emblem. The olive also symbolizes light, as the oil produced from the olive lightened the Menorah in the Temple. As well as its significant role in anointing kings and high-priests.
Also engraved toward the yad are the words שלום- PEACE. We are able to personalise this engraving into any name , dedication, verse or word of your choosing.
Engraved in sterling silver at the top of the pointer is the Star of David and the biblical verse from Proverbs 3:18, 3:17, Lamentations 5:21:
עֵץ חַיִּים הִיא לַמַּחֲזִיקִים בָּהּ. וְתמְכֶיהָ מְאֻשָּׁר
דְּרָכֶיהָ דַרְכֵי נעַם וְכָל נְתִיבותֶיהָ שָׁלום:
“It is a TREE of life for those who hold fast to it, and those who uphold it are happy. Its ways are pleasant, and all of its paths peaceful. Return us to you, God, so that we shall return, renew our days as of old.”
This song is sung in synagogues when the Torah Scroll is returned to the Ark.
The Star of David has long been a popular decorative motif on all sorts of Judaica, jewelry and art, owing to its beautiful geometric symmetry as well as its deep and powerful symbolism.
Incorporated artistically within the sterling silver design are the letters ש-מ-ע ( Shema) The full Hebrew biblical inscription (Book of Devarim) of which is: ‘Shema Israel the Lord our G-d is one’.
This statement is said 3 times a day in synagogues and is placed in mezuzahs on doorposts of Jewish homes as a constant reminder of Hashem and for protection of our homes.
The Shema is the ultimate statement of the most fundamental belief and our love for G-d.
This exquisite Torah pointer constitutes a constant reminder and symbol of our love for the land of Israel, peace and for G-d.
A breathtaking work of art that will make a precious gift to last for a lifetime.
