I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to help us select and receive the beautiful miniature kiddush cups. We purchased these for our seniors who are residents of the Kobernick-Anchin campus here in Sarasota, Florida who previously had been using plastic cups! We dedicated the new kiddush cups at our Kabbalat Shabbat service - residents held the cups with such joy, they loved the Jerusalem design which reminded them of long-ago visits to Israel. Several residents with Alzheimer's spoke up, some for the first time in months. Thank you so much. Rabbi Barbara Aiello, resident rabbi, Kobernick Campus, Sarasota, FL
Buy your Hatikva posters at Israel-catalog, and proclaim loud and clear your support for the State of Israel. The poem Hatikva, originally titled Tikvatenu, was written by Naphtali Herz Imbar after the settlement of Petach Tikva was established in the Holy Land in the late 1800s. The poem was adopted as the unofficial anthem of the Hovevai Zion movement, and later by the Zionist movement at the first Zionist Congress, held in Basle, Switzerland in 1897. It became the anthem of the State of Israel upon it’s establishment in 948, and was officially recognized as the official anthem of the State of Israel by the Israeli Knesset in 1948. Hatikva is a song about the yearning of the Jewish people to return to Zion and their Jewish homeland of Israel throughout their 2,000 year history. It is therefore linked with with the Zionist dream, and pride in the Jewish State. Show your pride in Israel by hanging one of our well designed beautifully decorated Hatikva posters in your office, home or classroom. Our Hatikva posters also make excellent gifts for the Zionist in your life.
