This is a Jewish symbol found in our home. This is supposed to provide blessings to the home and remind of God’s blessing. [“Let God bless this house with peace, Health and richness be molded from happiness, love, and prosperity”] The shape of the object represents God’s hand while Jerusalem is a reminder of the holy land. Jerusalem being on God’s hands represents how close God is to the people of Jerusalem. The candles of the image are a reminder of God’s presence. This is an axis mundi that allows some to feel closer to God. The flames of the candles symbolize humans souls and their fragility and how close we are to God (The candles).
