20 Description

Two identical sets of pictures appear in the lower tier of the walls. They start on the eastern wall with paintings of Magen David and the Crown of the Torah. The first pier of the northern/southern wall has a “triptych” of two seven-branched menorot and the tablets of the Law, inscribed נר מצוה ותורה אור (“For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light,” Prov. 6: 23). The second pier of the northern/southern wall has a “diptych” of two eternal lights, inscribed שמור נרי ואני אשמור נרך (Midrash Tehilim, 18). The western pier of the northern/southern wall also has a “diptych”: a goblet is inscribed כוס ישועות אשא (“I will take the cup of salvation,” Ps. 116:13); a laver is inscribed ארחץ בנקיון כפי (“I will wash my hands in innocence,” Ps. 26:6). The last pictures of the set appears on the western wall: there are two identical but mirrored depictions of the Western Wall in Jerusalem appear; each one is inscribed כותל מערבי (The Western Wall).
