During the fall High Holiday season of Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Sukkot [also known as the Feast of Tabernacles] there is a tradition to flavor the traditional Challah with honey. Many Jewish cooks flavor their dishes with all variations of honey during this time also.
The honey dish is a favorite piece of Judaica that many artists love to decorate with the Rosh Hashana symbols and the more popular Judaica motifs like Jerusalem and the Seven species.
This Honey dish by Yair Emanuel features the Jewish motifs most common in his work - namely brightly painted red pomegranates and the colorful buildings of Jerusalem. The wood coaster is easy to clean - a layer of lacquer protects the paint, so it can be wiped down with a damp sponge or cloth, while the glass bowl insert is dishwasher safe.
This honey dish is available in two designs:
1-Jerusalem: The old city of Jerusalem. The Arch of Rambam's Synagague and the Western Wall are prominently displayed around the rim, while red pomegranates go along the side edge.
2-Pomegranates: A leafy branch filled with pomegranates decorates most of the coaster rim, with smaller pomegranates painted along the vertical edge.
Dimensions: 2 inch diameter 1.8' height (diam 5 cm, ht 4.5cm)
