Cedar is a wood known for its significance in the Torah, mainly for its use in the building of the Mishkan. Cedar is a very pleasant aromatic wood and in the time of our ancestors was also used, along with other items, as a way to "cleanse the home". Cedar wood has a very unique grain pattern and color. This particular cedar is commonly referred to as Eastern Red cedar.
