Re: Jews in England: Jewish star with a cross inside #general

Dorothy -

I thought your question was interesting, so I went
looking for an answer. I found pages with religious
jewelry that identify it as a symbol of the Messianics.

I didn't know about them, so I found this site - one
among many after searching at google for messianic.

This page has a brief definition of Messianic religious groups -
[or -- Mod.]

Apparently there was a Messianic movement in Europe in the 1600's

Maybe someone else can shed more light on this subject.

Apropos to this subject I'd like to ask if anyone has knowledge of a Jewish
star with a cross inside? I found this engraved on a tombstone in Wales.
The graveyard was very, very old, overgrown with nettles and other weeds.

I was struck dumb by this sight. If I remember right the name on the stone
wasn't typically Jewish but that might not mean anything.

Many years later I saw the same symbol, a sixpointed star with a cross in
it, painted on the side of a hippy Volkswagon bus.
