Supporting Local Israeli Businesses
In addition to being our best-selling items, and like everything on our site, each piece is made in Israel by local artists. When you shop with us, you're supporting Israeli artists living in the Jewish homeland who draw their inspiration from Jewish tradition and the Land of Israel.
A handful of the designers we work with are also carrying on longstanding family businesses that have been creating Judaica for hundreds and hundreds of years. Shofar maker Barsheshet-Ribak
is a perfect example: their family business dates back to 14th century Spain and continues to craft traditional, kosher shofars from their studio in an artist's colony in Tel Aviv.
