Gifts from Jerusalem, Yerushalaim, are always trendy and meaningful, especially when they depict a picture or other aspect of this eternal city that was believed to be the center of the world. For thousands of years Jerusalem has been the temporal and spiritual center of the Jewish people, for which more tears and blood have been shed and more prayers offered than for any other region of the world.
Since the destruction of the second temple and the exile from Israel we remember Jerusalem wherever we are especially so in the joyous moments of life. We remember Jerusalem when married and vow never to forget it. There is an ancient custom to leave a patch near the entrance to one's home unfinished as a remembrance of the destruction of the temples and Jerusalem. We say: If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither, let my tongue cleave to my palate if I do not remember you.
We love to think of Jerusalem as it is now, the capital of the state of Israel. Give somebody you care for a Jerusalem gift with a verse about or a scene of Jerusalem and let him or her envision this city in everyday life. Bring a gift from Israel depicting Jerusalem to your friends and family whenever the occasion arouses. Jerusalem gifts will remind them of their last trip to Jerusalem or the one they plan to do in the future.
We collected a great collection of Jewish ritual and everyday items that have Jerusalem painted, etched, embroidered to them. You will find small Jerusalem gifts like Jerusalem wine stoppers or Jerusalem Netilat Yadaim towels, Jerusalem key holders, and more elaborate Jerusalem gifts like Jerusalem wall hangings, Jerusalem Tallits and Jerusalem Kiddush wine fountains, all with a beautiful adornment of Jerusalem.
In this Jerusalem section you will find artworks depicting if I forget you Jerusalem as well as the seventy names of the Eternal City Jerusalem.
