           ‫ְמנֹו ַרת ַה ֹּפ ַעל‬

              The Verb Menorah

This Menorah represents the fantastic order and music of the Hebrew
language. Notice the 3 right-hand branches, which represent active verbs,
while the 3 left-hand branches represent passive verbs.
The middle branch represents verbs, which can be both active and passive.

(Listen to CD for explanation and demonstration of the music)

written in the shape of Menorah. (For instance Psalm 67).
