This gorgeous embroidered tapestry is so wonderful, your living room or bedroom will never be the same! At the bottom is a detailed Old Jerusalem motif. In the center is the Biblical verse from King David's wisdom, Im eshkachech Yerushalayim, tishkach yemini ("If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither.") (Psalms 137:5). A beautiful prayer for our times, and a wonderful gift for anybody.
The fringes are made from glass and metal beads. The tapestry may be hung from the attached string.
