Two separate blue arches representing the Tablets of the Covenant are set in a white double-arched frame outlined in gold against a white background. The Ten Commandments are framed within a double arc painted on newsprint and written in black Hebrew block letters against patches of blue which roughly follow the contours of the letters. אני I am לא יהיה Thou shalt not לא תשא Thou shalt not take זכור Remember כבד Honour are all included here. The following commandments are written on the left tablet (Exodus 20:13-14): לא תרצח Thou shalt not kill לא תנאף Thou shalt not commit adultery לא תגנב Thou shalt not steal לא תענה Thou shalt not bear לא תחמד and Thou shalt not covet. The first commandment here is written in cursive letters.
