I Swear Not to Leave Israel

Star of David "I Swear" medal from kibbutz Tzeelim Musem.

Copyright: Boaz Krechmer 2008

The museum shows metal works from the beginning of the previous century starting with works of Boaz’s grandfather, Samuel Krechmer, who was the main manufacturer of coins medals and emblems in Israel. The words I Swear Not to Leave Israel are taken from the biblical verses of the Spies Affair in the Book of Numbers. Although the medal is antique the message is actual.
