Sundials in Eretz Israel- Zoharei Chama Synagogue, Jerusalem, stamp sheet
The changing shadows cast upon the ground as the sun apparently moved across the sky have caught people attention since ancient times.
this phenomenon was utilized in planning the sundial, the first tool that allowed people to measure the passing of time and determine the precise time to purposes of work and ritual.
In 1908 a large perpendicular sundial was built on the southern wall of the Zoharei Chama synagogue on Jaffa Street in Jerusalem.
