Last week was the sisterhood award cermony and i was very happy to attend, also all the pledges wore one of the colour from the precious stones.
I find it very interesting to know which stone represented which tribe of Israel.
Also can you imagine how diffcult it was to find these stones in the past ?

God Bless
