Size: 1" x 4" / 3.5 cm X 9.5 cm
Add a dash of elegant style to your dining room with this charming handmade salt and pepper shaker set, adorned with a stylish pomegranate decorative design and surrounded by the main verse to the well known Sabbath hymn, "Lecha Dodi" (Come my beloved): Lecha dodi l'krat kallah, pnei Shabbat n'kabalah (Come my beloved to welcome the Sabbath bride, the presence of the Sabbath let us receive).
A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolize the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
