Mixed-Faith Couple

Simon Round from the brings today an interesting story about a mixed-faith couple, David and Carolin Sommer, who have been married for five years and have two small children. They live in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. In order to avoid the extinction of Judaism in his family David educates his boys to be Jews. On the other hand at Christmas David and Carolin light candles for Chanucah and give presents. They have a turkey and they have a tree with a Star of David on top of it.

Mystical Rose

Athol Bloomer wrote an extensive article titled Mystical Rose where he claims that the two triangles of the Magen David are the two mems of the name of Miriaim. It is the union of the Divine Wisdom (the mem pointing downwards-mem sofit) with the Mother of Understanding and Wisdom (Sophia) (the mem pointing upwards). The Magen David is seen as a Key to the Tower of David and to the Rose Garden.

A similar claim was made, by researcher Uri Ofir  who claims that the origin of the Star of David is from the Tabernacle, a year after the exodus, and that it was made by the Lord in the shape of the Lilium Candidum (rose).

A big Star of David from late Byzantine period was found in the ruins of Sufa and in its center appears a side projection of a lily.

In Hebrew the number six (Shesh) and the rose (Shoshan) sound very close.

The more I learn this subject the more I find that there is a close relationship between these two emblems of the Jewish people – the Star of David and the rose (Shoshanat Yaakov)…


A guy named Francis wrote on February 25, 2004 an amazing story about a Microsoft critical update that took out the swastika font because it was an "unacceptable symbol" and the Star of David because it was next to the swastika and some people were offended by this neighborhood.
