The pink Georgian marble fountain, the centerpiece of the Hebrew Cultural Garden, originally sat upon seven pillars, representing the seven branches of wisdom. Along the base of the fountain was carved the quote from Solomon's Book of Proverbs, "Wisdom hath built herself a house; She hath hewn her out of seven pillars".
