Magen David

Magen David

The Magen David (Star of David) is an ancient Jewish symbol, although nobody knows why. It appears in archaeological remains and on the modern Israeli flag and many other Jewish and Israeli symbols, such as the Magen David Adom (“the red Star of David), the Israeli equivalent of the Red Cross.  Many Jewish people wear a Magen David on a necklace.
