Even if you’ve never been to a Jewish wedding, chances are you know that the couple smashes a glass beneath their feet, symbolizing a rejection of evil. Likewise, hamsas are an ancient symbol prevalent across the Middle East meant to ward off evil, and ensure good luck. Bring these two iconic items together in the Wedding Hamsa with Vessel for Wedding Shards. Handmade and with each unit being unique, these hamsa is made of gleaming blue and white glass, and in addition has a vessel in which to store your wedding shards, combining two keepsakes in one. While we’re on the subject of wedding glass storage, we have a variety of other options, including a brilliant metal Wedding Shards Tzedakah Box and a Tree of Life Wedding Shards Mezuzah.
After shattering an old wedding glass, nothing marks the beginning of a new union quite like a quality Kiddush Cup. Our own Wine Kiddush Cup is the perfect option there, with each one being carefully hand-painted with a brush using acrylic colors in a traditionally-Jewish style, as both the cup and saucer portray a bride a groom on a background of beautiful blooming flowers—the perfect metaphor for the new life which should spring from such a union.
If you’re looking to buy a novelty kippah for lucky couple, we have just the thing. Our Jewish Wedding Mazl Tov Kippah has “Mazel Tov” written on the front of a satin kippah, which also features a lovely image of a married couple.
Then again, maybe you’re more a Thoroughly Modern Mille type, and as surely as Julie Andrews sings a wonderful rendition of “Trinkt Le Chaim” (though doesn’t she sing everything wonderfully?) you’d prefer to give a more modern Jewish Wedding Gift. If so, our Ani LeDodi VeDodi Li Leather Bracelet is the perfect choice. On it is written in Hebrew "Ani LeDodi VeDodi Li" ("I am for my beloved and my beloved is for me...") (Song of Songs-Psalm 6:3). The first letters of the four Hebrew words comprising this verse spell the word Elul, which is the name of the Hebrew month preceding the High Holidays.
Available in black, red, pink, or brown and crafted and engraved by hand in Israel itself, the plaque is made from 925 Sterling Silver and 14K gold while the bracelet itself is genuine leather.
Whether you appeal to “Tradition” or prefer to be Thoroughly Modern in your own personal Jewishness, consider making these Jewish Wedding Gifts and Your Holy Land Store part of your celebration, and Mazel Tov.
