Jacobs Ladder
by: Anonymous

Good Evening Christina!

I understand how you feel, my father 's death devastated me,

Concerning your heirloom iitem, it looks to me like a pendant or fob cover and the scene is religious - profoundly important in Judaism...the scene is a depiction of "Jacobs ladder".

The description of Jacob's ladder appears in Genesis 28:10-19, and begins with Jacob, who
left Beersheba, and went toward Haran, where he slept the night....

" He dreamed, there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it [or "beside him"] and said, "I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants; and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you."

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep.

The tree of life can be interpreted as heaven.

Warmest Regards
Yvonne
