Christian hexagram with Tetragrammaton Dove and Cross
on a blackprint issued for celebrating 400 years to the Synod Zilina
Sent to me by Chastven Miloje (c) From Ashdod Israel

Tetragrammaton magen david at Templo de la CongregaciĆ³n Israelita Buenos Aires Synagogue is courtesy of Robert Pollack who published it on Flicker and it shows a Tetragrammaton surrounded by a Star of David surrounded by a circle.
Tetragrammaton in Greek means "The Four Letters"; it stands for the name of God which is comprised of four Hebrew letters (Yod, He, Vav and He).
Robert Pollack wrote to me:

It is a strong symbol, and one that suggests unity and interconnectedness. It always reminds me of an elaborate knot.

The tetraktys and its mysteries influenced the early kabbalists, who devised a similar form to expound upon the Tetragrammaton (the four lettered name of god in Hebrew scripture). The Kabbalistic Tree of Life, with its spheres of emanation, is derived from the tetraktys.
