Hand painted Mezuzah with Pomegranates & Jerusalem -Yair Emanuel
Brand: Yair Emanuel
Jerusalem is close to every Jew's heart so why not remind yourself of it every time you enter a room by placing this wooden Mezuzah with a colorful Jerusalem gate and pomegranate motif on your doorposts.
This Mezuzah boasts a beautiful image painted in acrylic and lacquer for protection, making it good for the indoors and outdoors. "Im Eshkachech Yerushalayim, Tishkach Yemini"- "If I forget thee O'Jerusalem, may my right hand lose its talent" is sang by Jews all the time which makes this Mezuzah very sentimental. Pomegranates are very symbolic in Judaism as they represent fertility and abundance and the 613 pips are reminiscent of the 613 Mitzvoth of the Torah. The top crown of the pomegranate with the 6 points resembles the Star of David and pomegranates are among the seven species of the Land of Israel. It is said that 400 pomegranates adorned the pillars of King Solomon's Temple, while red and blue pomegranates decorated the Kohen Hagadol's (High Priest) robes. To this day, pomegranate-shaped crown- rimonim- dress the poles of Torah scrolls.
This will make a great gift for a housewarming, engagement or wedding.
