Today, the Six Pointed Star or Hexagram is the most popular and universally recognized symbol of Jewry. It is known as Star of David, Magen David, or the Jewish Star. Ironically, David had nothing to do with the hexagram and it did not represent the Jewish people until the 17th century. Symbol of the Jewish has always been the Menorah. Hexagram is a very ancient symbol. It is present nearly in every culture on Earth.
