jerusalemtile1To commemorate this, I am including two images I created for a non-profit organization in New York. They wanted to design a tile as a fundraiser.

The Tile could be placed near the unfinished area or wherever. The final design was a variation of the green design but with a burnt look to commemorate the destruction of Jerusalem.
