Apollo Mezuzah Case by Laura Cowan
Nothing marks a Jewish home like a mezuzah, a piece of parchment inscribed with two verses from the Torah, placed in a decorative case, and hung on doorposts. A mezuzah represents Divine protection and injects a drop of spirituality into the home right from the moment you enter. It’s also an eloquent reminder of the importance of the Jewish home as a center for growth, love, and the building of beautiful relationships – So it makes a fantastic wedding gift. Today, there is a fantastic selection of mezuzah cases available – of every material, size, design, and price point. We’re loving this sleek contemporary take by Laura Cowan. Whichever option you choose, don’t forget that for your mezuzah to bring you Divine protection, it must be certified kosher with the parchment and handwritten text meeting certain requirements. So, here’s wishing you a home filled with blessing and protection!

Every Jewish home needs a pair of Shabbat candlesticks. Kindling the Shabbat lights before dusk on Friday evening is one of the most beautiful Jewish rituals around, and such a fantastic way to infuse some spirituality into your week. And how cool are Laura Cowan’s multi-purpose Shabbat candlesticks?! This bright young Israeli artist, hailing from England, has designed a gorgeous, sweet dish to grace your table all week long. Come Friday, exchange the candies for tea lights and welcome the Shabbat to your home in style.

A menorah makes a fantastic wedding gift. Its glowing lights during the festival of Hanukkah, with one more kindled each day, are an enduring symbol of Jewish faith, spiritual strength, and the courage to survive.
These days, there’s such a vast choice of menorahs on the market. Whatever your style – traditional or modern, whimsical or minimalist – there’s bound to be a perfect fit for you. For a sleek modern style, we’re loving Laura Cowan’s Slide Magnet Hanukkah Menorah!

Bruchim Habaim Sign
Welcome guests in with a sweet Bruchim Habaim plaque. Gracing your home with a Hebrew welcome sign – the literal translation is “Blessed are those who come” – is a beautiful way to accept all who enter your home (and a great conversation starter, too). We love this whimsical, colorful design from Dorit Judaica.
Yair Emanuel Hammered Nickel Cone Kiddush Cup Set – Blue Rings
Shabbat represents a break from the pressures and demands of modern living. And one of the most iconic symbols of this sacred day of rest is the kiddush cup, filled with wine, and the kiddush blessing and prayer that start the evening meal and set the tone for the relaxed atmosphere that is so unique to Shabbat. How gorgeous is this hammered nickel kiddish cup from Yair Emmanuel?!
