Dear WBCC members and non WBCC members,

Welcome into the World of Bi-, Tri- and Tetra-metallics. I hope you enjoy reading this week's issue of the WBCC Newsmail

1. Bi-metallic Special from Israel…..by Yossi Barzelay, Israel
I found interesting Bi-metallic items. I visited few days ago in the Tunisian Synagogue in Acre. All the walls of the Synagogue are covered with
beautiful mosaics. Including mosaics that describes coins among them was a mosaic of the 10 New Sheqalim coin.

Here is some information about the Synagogue
One of the world's most breathtaking tourist sites.
The Tunisian Synagogue in Acre – known as the "Jariva" is the only one of its kind in the world. It is literally covered in mosaics – both inside and out.
Each of its 4 floors proudly displays spectacular mosaics (from Kibbutz Eilon) – the outcome of 54 years of work. The Synagogue boasts 7 Torah arks
and houses hundreds of millions of natural stones from all over Israel.
The mosaics and stained-glass windows depict the history of the Jewish people and of the Land of Israel through Bible stories, flora and fauna, IDF corps and more.
