Description

A Replica of "A Silver Half Shekel" charm crafted from 925 sterling silver. This item is Authorized and commissioned by the Israel Antiquities Authority. The Half-Shekel coin was customarily used to pay the half shekel head-tax to when Beit Hamikdash still stood on Adar 13th at Mincha, afternoon prayers. The coin was given to the poor to use as they wished. This is to be done before Mincha and before the Megillah, megillat Esther reading on Purim evening. The reason for the custom of giving three half-shekels is that the Hebrew word terumah in English ‘donation’ and the words "half a shekel" are mentioned three times in the Torah portion of Ki Tisa, where the mitzvah of the half shekel is recorded. This does not release one from the Mitzvah of giving money to the poor, which is specifically prescribed and costumed on Purim. This charm will be a magnificent and meaningful addition to a classic charms bracelet. Add special meaning and a touch of history to your fashionable Jewish charms bracelet.
