Adi Sidler Buying Guide
Some of the best artists that we are honored to feature are graduates from the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, and Adi Sidler is one of them. An industrial designer, Adi Sidler's fantastic Judaica pieces are made by the modern and increasingly popular anodized aluminum, meaning each piece comes with a shine to it and is available in a large variety of colors. Sidler's pieces are created in contemporary style, so if you are looking for a step away from a traditional look, Adi Sidler's designs should be right up your ally.
A modern dreidel is no longer made out of clay, but rather colorful anodized aluminum! Sidler's dreidels bring an element of magic into the Hanukkah holiday with the interesting cutouts in each and every dreidel he designs. The fun starts with the shape of the dreidel, choosing between a classic circle or square, or an amorphous design and each dreidel has a different design in the cutouts like doves and Stars of David. Some dreidels are hypnotic with their spiral or sun-dial motifs that turn this ordinary spinning toy into a piece of art.
Mezuzahs by Adi Sidler are also touched with his modern ideas. Some mezuzahs follow a contemporary style but stick to their traditional routes like with incorporating Shema Yisrael into the design or having a hidden Hebrew letter "Shin" through the simple lines or built into the case. While not necessary, some put a mezuzah into their car for protection. These mezuzahs can also be placed throughout the home and come with wonderful minimalistic designs like this Way to Success one or a little Dove of Peace. Mezuzahs have become a symbol of personal style so choosing one you love is incredibly important.
Judaica is essential in one's home because every holiday requires something different. Adi Sidler has made some beautiful pieces to have in your home for Passover and Hanukkah, two of the longest holidays that require centerpiece like Judaica such as a Seder plate. For Passover, there are Seder plates and matzah trays and for Hanukkah you have some of the most unique menorahs out there like this kinetic menorah. Adi Sidler's Judaica has new style that will look stunning in any Jewish home.
Shabbat requires its own set of Judaica as it is like no other day of the week. We start Shabbat by lighting Shabbat candles, to which, Sidler has created the best travel sized candlesticks, like these square ones, for when you're doing Shabbat on the go. Next you need to make Motzi with a Challah board and traditionally, one puts salt on the challah, which can go into this neat little salt dish. On Shabbat day, the Torah is read and one cannot use their finger, which is why a Torah pointer, or Yad in Hebrew, is incredibly useful. Just like all of Adi Sidler's Judaica, each design is available in a variety of bold and fun colors.
