Symbolism Behind Stained Glass Color in Churches
In Europe and many countries, including Israel and the United States, these brilliantly colored windows honor Biblical passages held in esteem by religious congregations and Christian leaders.
For that reason, “Poor Man’s Bible” is a popular phrase in modern days when discussing stained glass windows. During medieval times, the poor were mostly illiterate and could not afford Bibles.

Stirring in a few entrepreneurs from Israel's start-up food community allowed the baker and chef to set up a new concept cafe called "Bread Story" on a busy corner near Dizengoff Square.
