Possibly the most iconic piece of Judaica is a set of sterling silver Shabbat candlesticks. For generations, Jewish artisans have been crafting these Shabbat candlesticks in traditional styles that have been used for centuries. Today, we not only offer you these original sterling silver designs with origins from Europe, but also modern and contemporary designs made by popular Israeli artists. Sterling silver Shabbat candlesticks come in dozens of styles that will welcome Shabbat into your home in the most elegant of ways.
The Light at the End of the Week
The Sabbath is the finish and the start to your week, the refuge toward which we work and the rest out of which we begin again. The items we use weekly in celebrating the Sabbath are like a prayer themselves that we take in our hands time and again in ritual observance. Perhaps you'd like to make a gift to a young family, or maybe it's time to purchase a new pair of candlesticks for your own family. Judaica Webstore has a wide selection, from classic candlesticks, to travel candleholders, to contemporary artisanal creations.
If you prefer finer materials and a more traditional aesthetic, we have pewter candlesticks plated in 24K gold and decorated with a seven-species motif, embellished with jewels and iridescent enamel. This basic design is available in a number of forms. For a more understated yet regal aesthetic, we also carry Hazorfim sterling silver candlesticks. Hazorfim is a celebrated silversmithing shop founded in Israel in 1952. Nickel-plated candelabra are also available, achieving a similar appearance for a more affordable price.
As Your Journey Continues
There is a particular poetry incident to our travel Sabbath candleholders. As objects they speak about keeping a tradition on a long journey, far away from home, which is essentially the story of the Jewish people. We offer several beautiful alternatives, including a stunning and cunningly clever jeweled pomegranate that opens up to let each half serve as a candleholder. Jerusalem-based artist Yair Emanuel offers a wooden hand-painted Star of David candleholder that operates in the same way the star opens, and each half holds a candle. Additional offerings include a silver sphere decorated with an Old Jerusalem motif that opens into two halves as well as several hand-painted boxes by Yair Emanuel that fit two tealights.
Bring your home into the contemporary era with a set of candle holders by Shraga Landesman, an Israeli artist who works in a modernist vernacular. Check out his pair of angels candleholder, as well as his birds and flowers. Or you might like Avner Agayof's hyper-minimalist candleholders of anodized aluminum.
