A shiviti, which can also be called a Mizrach, is based on the verse from Psalm 16:8: "I have set (shiviti) the Lord before me, always." Traditionally placed on the eastern wall (facing Jerusalem), it is a physical reminder of God's presence.

A shiviti is also used as an aid in meditation, emerging from 17th Century Jewish mystical beliefs.
