Watercolor drawing created by Arthur Szyk as a design for an Israeli postage stamp. Moses, Aaron, and Hur symbolize the temporal and spiritual authority in the new state as well as the nation's need to defend itself against Amalek, the Jews' ancient and perennial enemy, who appears in every generation. With his arms raised high, Moses stands as the guarantee of final victory
