The inscription in the center is a quotation from the Babylonian Talmud (Berakhot 58a): “How much effort did Adam the First exert before he found bread to eat! He plowed, sowed, reaped, sheaved, threshed, winnowed, separated, ground, sifted, kneaded, baked, and only thereafter he ate. And I, on the other hand, wake up and find all of these prepared for me.”

The inscription at the top is a quotation from Deut. 8:3: “Man does not live on bread alone.”

The inscription at the bottom is a quotation from the Babylonian Talmud (Shabbat 30b): “In the future, the Land of Israel will produce cakes.”
