Home Blessings are artwork pieces featuring Jewish house blessings, commonly hung up and displayed in Jewish homes in a desire to invoke Divine protection or wish good fortune on the household. They are also meaningful and traditional gifts for weddings, housewarmings, or holidays - and make for a perfect Judaica item to start one's New Year off with blessings and good wishes!

There are several different texts that are commonly used as traditional home blessings, with variations in both Hebrew and English. Most call for positive attributes to be placed on the home and its inhabitants, such as happiness, success, peace, love, luck, and abundance. Home blessings come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and are often elaborately artistic.

We carry over a hundred pieces of artwork and home décor with these traditional house blessings, all made in the Land of Israel by local artists. And since 13 is considered one of Judaism's luckiest numbers (due to being the age of bar mitzvah and a recurring theme in religious texts and kabbalah), we've picked our favorite 13 artistic home blessings to bring luck into your home:

1. Dorit Judaica Home Blessing Wall Hanging
