The Best of the Israel Museum
Ranked among the world's leading art and archeology museums is the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. This magnificent museum has three main components to it; the amazing sculpture garden featuring Robert Indiana's Ahava sculpture, the home of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Shrine of the Book, and of course the main building which contains incredible pieces of history, art, and Judaica from Israel and around the world. The Israel Museum's focus on Jewish history is one of the reasons why so many come to visit the museum as it is a way to teach of heritage, and the Israel Museum has embraced this by creating fantastic replica in the form of jewelry, Judaica, and more for you and your home.
Judaica has always been at the center of Jewish life, as different pieces are used every Shabbat and holiday. The Israel Museum has brought ancient Judaica back to life with their incredible selection of Judaica from some of the largest Jewish communities in the world. Each piece tells a story of how life once was in these places throughout the different time periods. From Hanukkah menorahs, Seder plates, Kiddush cups, Shabbat candlesticks and more, these would make a wonderful gift for any special occasion.
Everyone loves a meaningful piece of jewelry, but when you wear a piece of Israel Museum jewelry, you are literally wearing history. Wether inspired by ancient jewelry, by a piece of a historic coin, amulet, or by a statue in the sculpture garden, Israel Museum jewelry is creative and modern, while not forgetting about their ancient origins. Truely a fantastic treasure, these jewelry masterpieces have made wonderful accessories for all ages, earning dozens of compliments. Enjoy a piece of wearable history when you buy any necklace, bracelet, earrings, rings, pins and charms from the Israel Museum.
The very best of the Israel Museum gift shop is the selection of replicas you can choose to feature in your home. Wall hangings, bookends, keychains, tiles and more, each resemble a piece of intriguing piece of history or art displayed at the museum. One of the most popular replicas are the Dead Sea Scrolls, that come with a clay pot done in a similar style the ones the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in. These ancient scrolls and artifacts of those who wrote them are on display in the Shrine of the Book. Any replica would be a great gift for a history buff or someone who has a deep appreciation for their heritage.
Ahava, the Hebrew word for love, has its place in the Israel Museum Sculpture Garden, where Robert Indiana's iconic Ahava sculpture stands. Robert Indiana is the artist behind the famous "LOVE" print with the slanted letter "O". The Israel Museum has taken this magnificent sculpture and turned it into home decor, accessories, clothing, bags, and keychains so that everyone can have a piece of "love" from Israel, no matter where in the world they are. Anything from this selection would make a beloved gift for someone really special, to show just how much you care for them.
