Alms plate for the poor and scholars in the Holy Land (1930).
The hebrew inscription says: “If I do not keep Jerusalem in memory even at my happiest hour” (Psalms 137:6). The plate was probably made for a wedding, as the inscription in the middle of the bottom of the plate reads “Mazel Tov”. It is costomary to collect money for the needy in the Holy Land during wedding ceremonies. The words Mazel Tov surrounded by a sentence revealing that the charitable organization for which money was being collected was named after Rabbi Meir Ba’al Haness (Meir the Miracle Maker).
