Twelve Tribes

This precious model redraws the story of the twelve tribes of Israel and at the same time the twelve sons of Jacob.

“Just as the world does not develop or live except by the sun, the soul does not develop and achieve its fullness of life except through the Torah.”


David Kimhi


The twelve tribes of Israel are the twelve groups into which, according to biblical tradition, the Jewish people were divided. Each tribe was believed to be descended from one of the twelve sons of Jacob, and was named after him: Reouvene, Shimone, Levy, Yehouda, Yissakhar, Zevouloune, Dan, Naphthali, Gad, Asher, Yossef, Binyamine. The number 12 is a symbol of completeness, of unity. It is a number also found in other tribes, such as the sons of Ishmael, Naor, Ioctan, and Esau. Similar organisational models are known from Asia Minor, Greece and Italy.


The rotation system of the pen barrel reveals one after the other the twelve tribes, from right to left, each associated with a pictogram and an enamelled colour. The clip has a small Torah hand modelled on it, as a sign of protection. The five fingers represent the five books of the Torah. Other symbols are also engraved, such as the Menorah, the Star of David and an olive branch, representing peace and prosperity. The cap is blue and white, like the Israel flag.
