The Star of David, or The Magen David, means what? The symbol of intertwined equilateral triangles is a common one in the Middle East and North Africa, and is thought to bring good luck. It is a more modern symbol – not mentioned in Jewish literature until the middle ages. In the 17th century, it became a popular practice to put Magen Davids on the outside of synagogues, to identify them as Jewish houses of worship in much the same way that a cross identified a Christian house of worship. Rabbi Feinstein concludes that this symbol, hallowed by centuries of traditional usage, should be respected, because it is meant to symbolize the eternal Jewish faith in God no matter what the adversity.
