We are proud to present an exciting line of Artistic Judaica by Yair Emanuel.
This gorgeous tapestry is so wonderful, your living room or bedroom will never be the same! In the center is the Hebrew verse Yasimech Elokim Kesarah, Rivka, Rachel, Veleah ("May God make you as Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah.") (the Siddur, and cf. Genesis 48:20). With these words Jewish fathers have been blessing their daughters for centuries.
The pomegranate border is a classic Jewish decorative motif.
The fringes are made from glass and metal beads. The tapestry may be hung from the attached string.
