A stunning Seven Species Mezuza case by Judaica artist Lev Shneiderman.
In black, made in Israel.
Takes 4.7" parchment.
The land of Israel was blessed with seven species of plenty in biblical times: wheat, barley, grapevines, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. For many centuries these motifs have adorned synagogue walls, manuscripts, coins, jewelry and other Judaic art. Lev Shniderman’s contemporary rendition of “Shivat Haminim” (The Seven Species) join this long tradition.
The letter Shin stands for one of God's many sacred acronyms and for "Shomer Dlatot Israel", which means the protector of our gates. This beautiful Mezuzah case makes a wonderful gift for anniversaries and weddings.
Takes 12cm / 4.7" inch scroll.
