Star of David – The Star of David has been associated with the Jewish people for many centuries. The six sided figure, called Magen David in Hebrew translated to “Shield of David”, symbolizes that God rules over the universe and protects us from six directions: North, South, East, West, Up and Down. The middle of the hexagram symbolizes the spiritual dimension.

Chai – is the Hebrew word for life. The word consisting of two Hebrew letters – chet and yud, is a Jewish symbol frequently used on pendants and other jewelry. Chai also references the number 18.
