The David Shield

This is the Star of David on the door of the local Jewish Cemetery.

By the marks on the door frame, it appears that this is a replacement.  I hope it wasn’t lost through vandalism.  The star is really called the David Shield because it’s the shape of the shield believed to have been used by King David’s army although its not as old a symbol of Judaism as the menorah.
