  • More details:
       As taught by Kabbalah teachings, the process of creating the world was achieved by the Tzimtzum or Divine Contraction which is likened to the folding in of G-d’s three inner fingers into His palm (a "kamitza") to create a “vacant space” which was then occupied by heavenly Jerusalem and the lower & upper Gardens of Eden, crowned by three letters of yod. The two menora forms suggest the seven heavens and the seven lower worlds. The nether Jerusalem is the ellipse on the bottom.
