YMCA Lampshade

YMCA Lampshade Jerusalem hexagram
Photo is courtesy of my friend painter Dick Ben Dor who went to a concert in YMCA in West Jerusalem and noticed this splendid Star of David on a lampshade with its amazing Star of David shadow. As I already wrote the YMCA in West Jerusalem is one of few places dedicated to bridge between Christians Jews and Muslims. The Star of David is a bridging emblem that is in use in all major religions but in YMCA it is representing only Judaism since, IMHO, the YMCA builders didn’t know how important it is to all religions.
