Peer through a window into the holy city of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) from the comfort of your Shabbat table with this elegant and modern Kiddush cup goblet. It features a beautiful engraved “window” design, with artwork of the Old City skyline, a resplendent mixture of palm trees, and structures, old and new, from the many faiths that hold Jerusalem dear. The Hebrew phrase, “boray peri hagafen”, is also engraved on the judaica goblet’s pristine surface, referencing the Kiddush blessing over wine. Also included with this beautiful goblet are a matching grape vine saucer, and a protective plastic cup liner.
Although Tel Aviv is the modern-day capital of the Israeli State, Jerusalem is considered the Holy Land’s biblical capital. The First and Second Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, and the ancient Israelites would travel from far and wide to bring sacrifices to G-d and worship there. Today, the Jewish nation is scattered all over the world, but every Passover, Jews exclaim, “L’shana haba’ah b’Yerushalayim,” meaning, “Next year, we’ll be in Jerusalem,” in hopes that the Temple will be rebuilt and we will all be able to celebrate the holidays together in Jerusalem once more.
