Maybe you have wondered what the Star of David Necklace means and why is the Star of David significant to the Jewish people. How we understand “Star of David” in the English translation is very different from what its Hebrew original means. The Hebrew term “Magen David” actually connotes “protector” or “shield”. In the old Jewish traditions it is taught that refers to King David’s shield. Traditional sources describe King David’s shield as being emblazoned with a six pointed star. According to this general story, it was this specific form of shield that drew G-d’s protection for King David with his men and led to their famous victories in battle.
The Star of David (or Magen David in Hebrew- means ‘David’s shield’) poetically this refers to G-d. as protector of Israel and King David as representative of the Nation. This six pointed star is a fixture of synagogue and is worn as Jewish jewelry symbolizing G-d ‘s universe dominion and protection for us all coming from the six directions: North and South; East and West; as well as Up and Down. The hexagon in the middle represents the Sh’Kina or Divine spirit – which is the dimension of God’s protection.
Men in western countries seldom wear Jewelry. About the only Jewish jewelry commonly seen on men is a Star of David or a Chai pendant. Among many communities a Medium to Large Star of David is a common gift to a man for Bar Mitzvah or engagement, or any occasion.
