Shabbat Candle Sticks

On each of six "days" God created the world as we know it. On the seventh day, He "rested" and declared it the Sabbath Day (Shabbat, in Hebrew) a rest day. In the Jewish home, Friday evening, or the evening before the seventh day, is specially marked: Erev Shabbat, or, the Eve preceding the Sabbath.

On Erev Shabbat, the woman of the house lights a pair of candles. The flame represents the human soul, that flickers in its fragility, but also gives off light and that is connected with joy.

A gift of beautiful and unique Shabbat candle holders will bring joy to the recipients. Whether religious or not, most Jews can connect emotionally with the idea of the lighting of the Shabbat candles. It is one of the most central features of Judaism that are remembered even by the nonobservant Jew.

The unique red candlesticks (32 cm) on the upper left are handmade from sterling silver.

Above we see a pair of sterling silver shabbat candlesticks (30 cm) with images representing the six days of creation.

The sterling silver candlesticks (30 cm) to the left have a cast silver leaf applique.

Below we can see two smaller and less expensive pairs of candlesticks that use the exquisite cut-out pattern design.

The Kiddush Cup

In ancient times, wine was a daily beverage. On Shabbat, a special blessing (Kiddush) is said over the wine and it is held in a special cup in order to commemorate the Sabbath.

After the blessing has been recited, usually by the oldest male present, he takes a sip from the Kiddush cup and passes it around the table so that everyone can take a sip from the blessed wine.

Kiddush is also recited on other holidays. For this reason, a Kiddush cup has particular significance for the Jewish family, religious or not.

Any of these beautiful Kiddush cups would be a wonderful symbol reminding the recipients of the generosity and consideration of the gift-giver - you!

The Shabbat Challah Board

The special braided bread commemorating the Sabbath is called a challah. The challah is kept on the table on a special board and is covered with a special cloth until after the kiddush. Then the bread is cut and pieces given to all those sitting around the table. Dipped in a bit of salt, the challah, which is made with extra eggs, represents the richness of the Sabbath.

The gift of a challah board will connect you with the Shabbat meal in a very special way.

Lower left: A wooden round challah board with sterling silver design around the edge - the Jerusalem skyline and the words: In honor of the holiday.

Lower right: A wood rectangular challah board with cut-out sterling silver decoration showing various Shabbat motifs and the words, For Shabbat and holidays.

The artist's remarkable commentary in English and Hebrew comprise the second edition.
