Yair Emmanuel

A graduate of Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, Emmanuel is a well-loved favorite of Judaica fans around the world. Pomegranates festoon many of his gorgeous designs, so it’s almost impossible to choose the “best” of his collections just for Rosh Hashanah. His metalwork shines, but so does his traditional embroideries. With a mix of old and new, Emmanuel has something for everyone. Browse the Yair Emmanual collection.

David Gerstein

Born in Jerusalem, Gerstein studied at Bezalel and Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. His colorful and spirited works have appeared in galleries and exhibitions around the world. It's hard to miss the playfully bright and larger than life interpretations of Jewish symbols, people, animals, and nature that characterize his works. We feature over 90 different David Gerstein designs.

Shraga Landesman

Another Israeli artist, Landesman uses metals and natural materials to create his modern-art style Judaica with a historical feeling. Based out of Haifa, Landesman sees inspiration in Israel’s nature, the Bible, ancient objects & cultures, and more. The combination of modern methods & materials with ancient aesthetics makes his works inspirational. See more of Shraga Landesman’s works.

Nadav Art

Located in Jerusalem and producing quality Judaica for over 60 years, each sterling silver Kiddush cup is made to order just for you to treasure for a lifetime. Nadav Art features classic designs in pure 925 sterling silver as well as hammered looks and artistic interpretations. The ancient craft of metalwork is alive and well in Nadav Art's studio. See more of Nadav Art’s Kiddush cups.

Moshe Castel

If you’ve been to MOMA New York or the Baltimore Museum of Fine Art, you may have already seen work from this talented painter, Israeli, and Rabbi’s son, born in 1909 Hebron. Castel’s works have a unique technique and form, combining his religious background, upbringing in Israel, studies in Paris, and later life in the mystical city of Tzfat. View more of Moshe Castel’s artworks.

Barbara Shaw

Based out of Jerusalem, Shaw’s designs are a distinctly modern and fun take on traditional and everyday objects. An immigrant to Israel from Australia, Shaw says, “I would like my products to have an international look yet with the feel that says this could only have been produced in Israel. I want to design and make beautiful, useful everyday objects that are a pleasure to give and a delight and surprise to receive.” Browse over 180 enchanting Barbara Shaw designs.

Ha'ari Jewelry

Focusing on Kabbalah jewelry, this exquisite jewelry studio is one of Israel's favorite. The spiritual-oriented designs combined with an artistic appreciation make these creations eye-catching, distinctive, and uncommon. Jewish themes and imagery abound their collections, which is why it was such a challenge to pick just one favorite for Rosh Hashana. Have a look at more gorgeous Ha’ari Jewelry.

Safed Candles

In Tzfat, Safed Candles was founded more than 20 years ago as a way to bring jobs to this mystical city that didn’t have enough work to go around. After 20 years, they’ve moved out of their artisan workshop to satisfy greater demand, but still maintain the hand-dipped and quality craftsmanship of their candles. The pomegranate Havdalah candle is halacha-approved, as are many of their ceremonial candles. Don’t miss Safed Candles when you’re looking for a gift.

Lin Farms

One of the foremost manufacturers of honey in Israel, Lin Farms makes its home in Southern Israel. They gather the honey from Israel's many local producers, different regions, and diverse flowers, to create various varieties of honey. An ancient art, beekeeping is still part of Israel's modern economy. As you drive through Israel, you'll notice beehives set up in the countryside, but also in pockets of natural growth or fields in and around cities. Lin’s makes honey, but also dips, spreads, and all kinds of treats – shop Lin’s Farm.

Happy New Year

At this time of reflection, we’d like to offer our sincere apology to our customers, our suppliers & artists, and our employees for our shortcomings over the past year. Running a business is a huge challenge and we try out best, but know realistically that we always have room to do better. We’ve updated our website and it’s been a bit of a rocky road, so thanks for sticking with us.

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and sweet Rosh Hashanah!
