Exceeding Good Land

Magen David Israeli map

A detail from a happy New Year card sent decades ago by Moshe Bar Yuda to his friend. Caption is from the Bible: If I forget Thee. In the center of the Magen David a line from the national anthem and the Israeli map.

From Hayim Shtayer’s collection.


Vandalism Red Star of DavidRed Star of David was painted on the stonewall of the pool at
Manya Schochat park, Carmel center, Haifa, in February 2008. My first reaction was: Vandalism, but later I assumed it may be a legitimate protest: why are the municipalities wasting money on luxuries while people are suffering hunger and injustice?

Anglican Graves

Anglican Graves Hexagram

This rare Photo is courtesy of Webrarian who wrote to me:

I was in Wales over the weekend and spotted three graves, which had both Stars of David and the IHS symbol - one at each end. The three graves were for members of the same family - the Spencers. They were farmers, brewers and innkeepers.

IHS stands for: Iesus Hominum Salvator.

As far as I can recall, this is the first Anglican six-pointed star that I stumbled upon. These first appearances are the highlights of this blog and its justification...
