If you've ever been to (or seen) a Jewish wedding, you recognize a circle of people holding hands, trying to move in the same direction, trying to kick their feet in the same direction without kicking each other, and generally trying to have a good time to the lively music of 'Hava Nagila'...the traditional Jewish Hora dance song.
This is the scene cut through a solid sterling silver pendant...a Hora circle of dancers. There are Hebrew words cut out too and the inscription reads... "And your children shall come again to their own border." --Jeremiah 31:17
There are also Hebrew letters around the edge of the pendant.
The pendant measures 1 1/4 inches each way. It's 1/8 inch thick. It hangs from a 24 inch solid sterling silver chain. Together, they weigh 21 grams. The necklace is unpolished with original silver patina.
Some historical trivia...“Hora” comes from ancient Greek khoros. Traditional circle dances deriving their names from khoros are found throughout the Balkans and southeastern Europe. They include the Turkish and Romanian hora, the Bulgarian horo, the Montenegrin and Macedonian ora, the Russian khorovod, and of course, the Israeli hora. These are all very old and very similar in the way they are danced. Move along with the circle and try to not kick someone. And drinking wine helps.
