Memory Plate

Memory Plate Jewish StarPhoto is courtesy of "Parke"
who published it on Flickr and wrote to me:
This is inside the Anshei Minsk Synagogue in Kensington Market in downtown Toronto. The Minsk is an operating orthodox synagogue today.
I visted during Doors Open Toronto, during which many places open their doors to the general public. I took this photo on the Sabbath (Saturday), which I really shouldn't have.

The hexagonal frame of the Star of David is used sometimes to store "important Jewish things" like the name of God, Jerusalem, Zion, and in this case for a memory plate. Some day I'll publish a list of all the "important Jewish things" I found inside this frame...
