Artist Channa Horwitz was born in Los Angeles, 1932. She lives in Santa Monica, California, USA.
Channa wrote to me:

This sculpture was created as a proposal for a Temple. I call it Star of David, Prayer Vessel. In the back of the Star of David is an empty large container completely enclosed with a small hole in the side. I envisioned this sculpture 6' tall and placed in the lobby of a Synagogue. I also envisioned people writing out small prayers and placing them into the small hole on the side of the sculpture. I envisioned these prayers disintegrating over time and generations of prayers placed on top, so that many generations of prayers would commingle and turn to dust.


Shalom  instead of Star of David

The word Shalom (peace) instead of the Star of David of our flag on a sticker issued by Peace Now Movement. The sticker is from Hayim Shtayer’s collection.
