Other language blazon

Hebrew:

ירוק, אריה כסף ידיו ולשוניו זהב. בידיו לפיד כחול שמיימי אורו זהב. בימין טריז כסף. בראש נשר אמריקאי בצבעיו מחזיק בעשרת הדיברות כסף. למוטו, "אבוא, אראה, אכבוש". מתחת למוטו, טבעת עם קשר ירוק.

Origin/meaning

The lion represents the armiger's name, Judah, while his golden tongue represents their chosen career, which requires smooth talking. The crown represents their middle name, David, their chosen career again, and belief in monarchism. The torch, representing Lady Liberty's torch, stands for the armiger's love of Truth, Justice, and the American Way, their beloved City of New York, and their blazing a new path for themselves and their descendants. At dexter, the gore represents a sense of brokenness and the way that completes who they are, while also representing a turning page, washing away what has passed and starting fresh and anew. The turning page also alludes to the armiger's love of learning and his lifelong pursuit of knowledge.

The crest represents the armiger's intertwined identities, as an American (bald eagle) and as a Jew (Two Tablets). The motto, a future tense version of Caesar's famous quote, speaks of their plans for the future, while the ring and knot below refers to their strong background in Scouting and their belief in the values Scouts espouses.
