You Pay: Prices from $78.00



This pendant is a replica of a medallion found at the Ophel excavations in the Old City. The original medallion dates back 1400 years, hailing from the dramatic Byzantine period. The medallion is embossed with the Menorah used in the Temple, an iconic image that pervaded Jewish objects. Its symbol was often used on ritualistic material. Beside the Menorah on either side is a shofar and a torah scroll, also symbols of Jewish ritual that are often found drawn or decorating ancient synagogues or mosaics in prominent buildings. Archeologists theorize that this coin-shaped medallion adorned a torah scroll or a torah scroll cover.

22K gold plated silver necklace.
Dimensions: 1”X0.4” / 2.7cmX1.2cm. Length 42 cm

In the Bible

And he said unto me: 'What seest thou?' And I said: 'I have seen, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and its seven lamps thereon; there are seven pipes, yea, seven, to the lamps, which are upon the top thereof;

On this occassion in the bible, the prophet alludes to the seven branched candleabra that will be used in the future temple. A reconstruction of the Candleabra from the tabernacle stands near the steps leading down to the Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem today in anticipation of the messiah and the reconstruction of the third temple.

    This necklace is just perfect for me. It is light and not hot in the summer. It has a story I can tell people when they ask. Really beyond my expectations. Thanks so much and loved the City of David paper it arrived in also.

    Stunning. The perfect gift for a perfect friend. A beautifully crafted replica of the oldest Torah scroll adornment ever found, and found in the Old City of Jerusalem. Wow! I love the powerful connection this piece gives to the ancient Hebrew tradition and the place on earth where Hashem planted it to grow and fill the earth with the knowledge of Him. The card depicting a maiden in blue gazing on the ancient walls stirred my heart, saying IT”S TIME for restoration! What a story to tell.

    I am a coin collector. Do you have ancient or modern coins of Israel? Not replicas, but actual coins of circulation.
