This very beautiful pendant in the shape of a key presents, in its center, a Menorah . Around this is the famous Psalm 137 אִם-אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ יְרוּשָׁלִָם-- תִּשְׁכַּח יְמִינִי which means: If I forget thee, Jerusalem, may the right hand dry up!
The 925 silver branches are cast to form the traditional Menorah which has been the universal emblem of the Jewish people throughout the world since time immemorial.
This pendant is perfect for anyone and for all ages.
Psalm 137 is one of the best known psalms in the book of psalms. It is the only one of the 150 psalms to evoke the exile in Babylon which followed the capture of Jerusalem by the king of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC. According to rabbinic tradition, it was written by the prophet Jeremiah.
This same psalm 137 is recited during the Tisha Beav fast which commemorates the fall of the Temple in Jerusalem. It is also recited in some Jewish communities before Birkat Hamazon, the prayer of thanks after the meal, on days when they do not recite Psalm 136. Verse 7 is found in the Amidah of Rosh Hashanah, and verses 5 and 6 are pronounced at the conclusion of marriage ceremonies.
