Most people do not think of kitchen items as being fancy items that reflect religious beliefs. In Judaism, however, where everything relates to Judaism on some level, kitchen items can be decorated for that reason. For this reason, it is possible to find unique Judaica items that are simple kitchen items, such as trays, knives and serving pieces. You can find many of these items on World of Judaica.
Looking for a housewarming gift? Look at World of Judaica’s selection of trays decorated with a traditional depiction of Jerusalem or a Hamsa. Such a tray would be a great pleasure to any couple with an affiliation with traditional Judaism or Israel. As an alternative, a honey dish would be a great gift that could be used for different purposes including as a sugar and honey dish for Rosh HaShana.
Because Sterling Silver is so popular amongst Jews and is commonly used in Judaica items, even simple serving trays are often sterling silver and decorated with fancy floral patterns around the outside along the handles. These trays are a great gift idea for either a wedding or a housewarming party and bound to be passed along as an heirloom.
If you would like an item that is totally different, browse our selection of fancy bread knives which depict Jewish themes and items, such as Jerusalem, the 7 species, Hamsas and embedded colored crystals representing the 12 Tribes of Israel. Some of these knives also have the blessing made prior to eating bread engraved into the handle. World of Judaica also has metal trivets shaped like pomegranates and fish, two traditional symbols of good luck in Judaism. These items make for great Jewish Wedding presents.
Shabbat is a time of rest and reflection, filled with blessings and prayers that differ from the rest of the week. It is important to beautify the Shabbat with both kitchen items and synagogue items such as lovely Tallits. To find out more about the uses of different Judaica items, visit our education pages.
