Product DescriptionModern tallit bag design with Jewish stars as borders. You stitch the front. After it is completely stitched, it is sent to a professional finisher who adds a lining, back, and matching zipper. The Star of David or Magen David (literally, Shield of David), as it is referred to in Hebrew, is the most common symbol for expressing Jewish identity today. The Hebrew name for the symbol – a hexagram formed by two overlapping triangles, one pointed upward and the other downward – comes from its supposed resemblance to King David’s shield. However, use of the Star of David as a Jewish symbol only became widespread in 17th-century Europe, when it was used displayed on synagogues to identify them as Jewish places of worship.
