Add a rich burst of color to your Seder table with this remarkable Cup of Elijah from acclaimed Israeli designer, Yair Emanuel. Made from wood, both the cup and its accompanying saucer are decorated with vividly colored depictions of the Holy City of Jerusalem, including the Western Wall and other iconic sites. Additionally, the word "Eliyahu" ("Elijah") is written across the center of the cup in a stylish Hebrew script. A venerable tradition, the Cup of Elijah is a cup of wine placed on the Seder table (but not drunk) and signifies our desire for the coming of the Messiah, when the Prophet Elijah will herald his arrival. Magnificently blending Jewish artistic motifs and richly enhanced by vibrant colors, you will love using this cup every Passover for many years to come.
As this piece is covered with three layers of lacquer, it is totally functional and waterproof and may be hand-washed.
