Shabtai Zvi Star of David Symbols

The Shabtai Zvi Star of David Symbols

In the explanation of the exhibition Nechama Lvendel - Nadav Bloch "Dönmeh - Following Shabtai Zvi" at the "Tova Osman" gallery in Tel Aviv it was written that the municipal gallery of Ulcin (Monte Negro State, formerly part of Yugoslavia on the border with Albania) has a a niche on the third floor surmounted by two Star of David symbols carved in stone. According to locals this place was a gathering place of Shabtai Tzvi and his followers. Shabtai Zvi was exiled to Ulcin and had been buried there. His grave is located indoors and is considered a holy place.
