The Seder Meal: An Occasion to Remember and to Share
Passover is unique among all Jewish holidays for its traditions, foods and ritual objects. It has become increasingly popular to use the Seder meal as an opportunity to invite friends and neighbors into one's home to share this special, symbolic meal, to teach others about our culture, and to strengthen our relationships. Whether you're hosting or you'll be a guest at someone else's table, you can help create an unforgettable holiday celebration.
Stories of Exodus
There is no better language than that of craft to help elucidate the significance of Passover, a holiday that commemorates the journey of a people across strange lands, in search of a better life. For example, our Passover objects of Armenian ceramic and Armenian motifs hold within their form and design the legacy of the Armenian people and their emigration to Israel. We also offer a number of Passover objects in Hazorfim Silver, a high-end, world-renowned silversmithing shop whose history is bound up in post-WWII emigration from Eastern Europe. In addition, our collection of Haggadahs includes ones that extend the scope of Passover by focusing on the experience of the Diasporic Communities, including the Babylonian Jews, and the Persian Jews and Ethiopian Jews in the 1980s and 1990s.
Contemporary Visual Variations on an Age-Old Tradition
Of course there are a number of contemporary interpretations of Passover items, including painted glass items from Lily Shohat of Gedera, Israel, and hand-painted wooden items from Bezalel Academy-trained and Jerusalem-based artist Yair Emanuel. Purchasing from contemporary crafters of Judaica is a great way to support those responsible for interpreting our traditions in new and exciting ways.
And don't forget the wine! We offer many varieties of Kosher wines from several vineyards, including Yarden and Gamla in the Golan Heights and Castel in the Judean hills.
