Sulam Yaakov

Jacob’s ladder is seen with angels cloaked in talitot (prayer shawls) blessing Jacob using the text of the priestly blessing, which culminates with peace. “Shalom” forms the rungs of the ladder representing G-d’s promise to protect Israel and return them to the Land of Israel in peace. The promise to Jacob at Beit El is reenacted with every priestly blessing.
