Jewish symbols – Part 1


Jewish Symbols 1

After going through several of my photo files, I stumbled across some great symbols I’d discovered in Bikur Cholim cemetery in Seattle. Many of them should be easily recognizable. If not, then a refresher skim through the Book of Psalms (think of singing psalms, accompanied by a harp for the symbol on the upper left) will turn on the light bulb.

For the Live Long and Prosper signal, yes, that’s actually a blessing. Read more here: The Jewish roots of Leonard Nimoy.

I’m curious about the barbed wire Star of David, though. Does it mean this person was a Holocaust survivor?
