Wear this symbol of unity and hope while acknowledging your love and support of Israel...
(Fun Fact: The Star of David was eventually cemented as a jewish symbol when it became a favorite architectural decoration on jewish buildings throughout the middle ages.
The star represents the hundreds and thousands of years of struggle, that the Israeli wanderers had been through. By the 17th century, it was displayed on the outside of synagogues to identify them as Jewish places of worship. By the latter part of the 19th Century, the symbol was adopted by the Zionist movement, and of course used commonly during the 20th Century to identify Jews—by some in a degrading fashion, but by themselves as well to show their unity and strength. The overlapping triangles forming a star are the two dimensions that represent the relationship between God and Humanity.
The Chai symbol in the middle of the star is simply the Hebrew word Chai "living" or "to life" with the two Hebrew letters Cheit and Yod attached to each other. The typical Jewish toast is l'Chayim (to life).
