The image of the Tablets of the Covenant has become a favorite Jewish symbol; he is placed over the ark with the scrolls of the Torah in the synagogue; it usually spells the first ten letters of the Hebrew alphabet or the first words of the Ten Commandments. The Table of Testament or the Table of Testimony are two stone slabs on which, according to the Bible, the Ten Commandments were inscribed. The transfer of tablets is a momentous moment in the history of the people. It is believed that from this moment an alliance was concluded between God and the Jewish people. According to the Talmudic tradition, this event took place on the 10th Jewish calendar, on the very day when, according to the biblical institution, the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) was celebrated - one of the most sacred Jewish holidays.
