Judaica – Shofar, Tallit, Menorah
Some of Israel’s most famous Judaica created are items that have been used since Biblical times. This includes the shofar, tallit and menorah. A shofar is an ancient instrument made from a ram’s horn that is said to be blown when the Messiah arrives. In Judaism, men and sometimes women, adorn a large cloth on their shoulders during prayer services called a tallit, as a symbol of their connection with God. Menorahs are iconic to Israel, as they were once used in the Temple. Religious items are found to be inspirational in times of prayer to Jews and Christians.
Another popular item found and made in Jerusalem is Armenian Ceramics. Armenian Christians have their own quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem. These colorful traditional Armenian pottery works have been handcrafted through the same process used for generations. Many designs feature beautiful hand painted flowers and mosaics of images found from throughout Israel’s Christian history. Many enjoy the popular pomegranates with scenes of Jerusalem or pretty floral designs featured in Armenian Ceramics.
