About Star of David

The Star of David has been found as an architectural motif in ancient synagogues as early as the 3rd century AD. It started appearing in Jewish texts by the 11th century and became particularly prominent in medieval Kabbalistic texts. By the 16th century, it became an official symbol of the Jewish communities, appearing on flags, prayer books, Seder plates, and many other objects of Jewish life and ritual. The Star of David remains perhaps the most recognizable Jewish symbol today.
