“Chagall Windows” is the popular name for the 12 decorated windows Mark Chagall installed in the synagogue of Hadassah Medical center in Jerusalem. 

Made over two years, and Installed in 1962, the 12 windows represent the 12 tribes of Israel. 

Following Jewish religious practice, the images exclude and figurative art. 

The windows were damaged in the Six days war in 1967, but were repered by Chagall in 1968, except for a piece in the window of Issaschar, in memory of the damage.
