An elegant and colorful mezuzah case - designed to house a handwritten parchment containing scriptural verses - by Israeli Judaica artist Yair Emanuel. Decorated in hues of red, blue, purple, and gold, this mezuza is a fine addition to the doorposts of your Jewish house.
Pomegranates and doves both hold traditional significance in Judaism and Jewish history. This small, artistically colored wooden mezuzah case depicts paintings of both on its colorful wood facings.
The pomegranate fruit is one of the seven species of produce in the Holy Land, since ancient times. The dove is symbolic of peace, and played an important role in the Bible story of Noah’s Ark. When forty days and nights of torrential, destructive rain had passed, Noah sent a dove to fly out the window of the ark, to see if it was safe for its occupants to return to the outside world. When the dove returned, clutching an olive branch in its legs, Noah’s hopes were confirmed.
This gorgeous Yair Emanuel Mezuzah Case makes a terrific gift or choice for your own home.
