Jerusalem Tallit Prayer Shawl

The purpose of the Talit was actually to wear tzitzit (tassels). A tzitzit should have been tied on each of the four corners so that when we look at tallit, especially at tzitzit, we recall God's commandments. Today there are T-shirts that have tzitzit at each of the four corners, once again illustrating that tzitzit is the most important.


Rosh Hashanah – Judgment Day, Jewish New Year

Rosh Hashanah - literally translated from Hebrew as "Head [beginning] of the Year" is the name of the Jewish New Year. In the Jewish calendar Rosh Hashanah always falls on the first two days of the autumn month of Tishrei and is both a holiday and, most importantly, the day of the Supreme Court. According to Jewish tradition, it is in Rosh Hashanah that the sentence for the next year is determined. People often mix Rosh Ha-Shana and Yom Kippur. Some also name Yom Kippur as a Day of Judgement, but this is not correct, because Yom Kippur is Day of Atonement and not a Day of Judgement.


14K-Gold Pendant with Masada Coin

Archeologists first discovered the ruins of the ancient fortress in 1862. However, thorough excavations and research were carried out only in 1963-65. Since 1971, a funicular has been operating on Masad connecting the foot of the rock with its peak. Visitors can also walk up to the gates of the fortress along the dangerous narrow "snake trail", a winding path along the eastern side of the cliff.


Oryx Shofar from the Holy Land

Oryxes are large and beautiful antelopes with long horns. They received their second name, chamois-bull for their striped pattern on the face (similar to chamois) and their large size (similar to a bull). In reality, these animals are not related to bulls or chamois, their closest relatives are equine, black antelopes and addax antelopes. In total, 4 types of oryxes are known: white (Arabian), East African (basey), Cape and saber-horned, which is often referred to simply as the saber-horn antelope.


Nano-Bible – The World’s Smallest Bible

Nano-Bible was invented and brought into life by Professor Uri Sivan and Dr. Ohad Zohar from the Russell Berry Institute of Nanotechnologies and the Haifa Technion, the leading Israeli Technology Institute, located in Haifa. Engineers made the practical implementation of the prototype from Sarah Nanoelectronics Center and Moshe Zisapel and Wolfson Microelectronics Training and Research Center. Former Israeli President Shimon Perez granted the first two copies of Nano-Bible to Pope Benedict XVI during his visit to Israel in 2009.



Already in the era of the Second Temple, the shofar was part of the national symbolism. Images of the shofar can be found in the mosaic decorations of the ancient synagogues.
