Even if the infant and his mother are still in the hospital, the party is held in the place where the new father is. But it is important to find a proper mohel to perform the Bris, say the proper blessings, and ensure that the Bris accords with Jewish law. God promised Abraham that his descendants would always remain the Chosen Nation.
A suggested reason for the Shalom Zachor is to comfort the baby from the loss of the Torah he studied in Heaven, by showing him that one day of the week, Shabbat, is devoted to spiritual pursuits. For his part, Abraham committed that he and all of his male progeny will retain a physical mark of God's Chosen Nation. Therefore, if a baby is born on Tuesday afternoon, his Bris should be on the following Tuesday.
The reasons it has been labeled as the Star of David include the fact that the "Shield of David" was a common way of describing the "God of Israel" in ancient times.
Additionally, the traditional Jewish prayer book known as the Siddur actually names the "Shield of David" in connection to King David - it says that the divine protection of King David ensures that his dynastic house will be restored.
Though there are many who have studied the significance of the form, what has made the Star of David such an interesting thing is that it appears in many ancient Judaic sites in Israel, and other parts of the world.
It has even been found in locations dating back to the third century.
In 1878 the founders of Petah Tikva learned of the availability of land northeast of Jaffa near the village of Mulabes (or Umlabes).
The land was owned by two Christian businessmen from Jaffa, Antoine Bishara Tayan and Selim Qassar, and was worked by some thirty tenant farmers.
However, Abdülhamid II cancelled the purchase and forbade them from settling there, but they retained the name Petah Tikva as a symbol of their aspirations.
The plow symbolizes Petah Tikva's origins as an agricultural settlement, the field symbolizes the drying of the Yarkon River swamps and cultivation of the land, and the orange tree symbolizes Petah Tikva's citrus industry, starting with the first tree planted by Rabbi Aryeh Leib Frumkin.
The emblem is inscribed by a verse from the Bible: "He who works his land will have abundant bread." (Proverbs ) Khirbat Mulabbis, dating to the Ottoman era, is believed to have been built on the site of the Crusader village of Bulbus, an identification proposed in the nineteenth century by French scholar J. A Crusader source from 1133 CE states that the Count of Jaffa granted the land to the Hospitaller order, including “the mill/mills of the three bridges” (“des moulins des trios ponts”).
Some are combined with gems and genuine ancient Roman glass. A Jew will know it as the Magen David or the Shield of David, but around the world it is commonly called the" Star of David" and is one of the most recognizable symbols of Judaism.
It is formed by two overlapping triangles (with one inverted and pointing downward), but is actually a geometric figure that is known as a "hexagram".
