six pointed star Judenstern

Judenstern is a homonym. It is the German name of the Yellow Badge and, at the same time, the name of German Shabbat lamps, which were designed in the shape of a six-pointed star.

It is most interesting to note that it precedes researcher Uri Ofir’s theory about the connection between the Star of David and the Tabernacle Menorah, which is also a kind of a lamp.
