Thank you so much for our beautiful menorah! It is even more impressive than I thought. It will be displayed and used with pride and love.
Lauren, Edgecliff, NSW, Australia

I just adore the Apollo mezuzah. You can't help but want to touch its beautiful shape whenever you see one! Easy in our house as they're all over.
Judith, London, England

Laura, the apple and honey plate has arrived! And it's a great thing of beauty. There is nothing like this out there...totally unique. Looking forward to placing it on the table Wednesday night.
Steve, Manchester, England

I recently purchased a silver Kiddush cup from you. My husband loves it!
Chana, Beer Sheva, Israel

I ordered the gold and silver menorah for my daughter and her fiancé. Your work is extraordinary! I love the way you blend Jewish themes with a very modern and celestial approach. It is like nothing I have ever seen.
Eve, Atlanta, GA

Among the many gifts which I have bestowed from your beautiful creations was the rainbow cone menorah to a very dear friend’s son for his Bar Mitzvah. This boy’s sister, now about to become a Bat Mitzvah, mentioned at the time how much she loved it and that she would love one herself.
David, Los Angeles, CA USA

Laura I'm so impressed by your creativity and clean style, your art is simply phenomenal.
Leah, San Francisco, USA

Our daughter got your Moon Seder Plate for her wedding and a good friend admired it so much that he requested it as our gift to him and his wife on their wedding. We know that it will be lovingly used.
Rosalind, Vancouver, Canada

I wanted to write you and tell you how delightful the Menorah's are. I LOVED your designs. They are so beautiful and creative.
Hanna, Jerusalem, Israel

I found your website simply by Googling "modern mezuzah". I picked up your Apollo mezuzah last year when I was "mezuzahing" our home last year, and I really love your creations. The Shabbat candlesticks are for my wife for Mother's Day. I think she'll love them.Next I'll invest in a Saturn mezuzah. Stunning! Please keep making wonderful works of art.
Gary, Boston, MA USA

We got the rocket candlesticks this week. They are really beautiful, and my wife and kids love them as much as I do. We can’t wait for Shabbos to use them.
Gary, Boston MA, USA

We love the Green orb mezuzah! You have a whole generation of my children’s friends with your handiwork gracing their homes
Susie, Raanana, Israel

Thank you so much. The slide magnet menorah is beautiful and I am sure she will love it!
Diane, Baltimore, Maryland, USA

The candlesticks arrived today and they are beautiful. Thank you very much.
Jessica, London, England

We received the Seder plate today and we are thrilled with it. Thank you for your efficiency.
Celia, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I discovered your mezuzah covers a few years ago in a local Judaica shop, and found them refreshingly different, and included them in the somewhat eclectic collection of mezuzot which adorn our home. When I now wanted to get a Menorah for the son of dear friends, and his mother’s only request was that it be something she wouldn’t need to polish, I knew where to look.
David, Antwerp, Belgium

Graphic Flowers Mezuzah, Black and White, Silver Lid - Fantastic! Thanks for designing these. Will definitely be a conversation piece!
Jon, NY, USA

Thank you so much for thinking of everything - gift wrapping, card, and mailing.
Gayle, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Chanukiah arrived this morning - it is wonderful, thank you again.

MODERN HANUKKAH MENORAH (Menorot) unique hand made and designed by Laura Cowan.

The Hanukkah Menorah is one of the oldest symbols in Jewish tradition. The menorah is lit during the eight days of Hannukah (sometimes spelled Chanukah), the Jewish Festival of Lights. It is a time for the family to gather and perform the cultural rituals of the Chag. Laura's modern menorah designs meet the requirements of Halacha (Jewish law) that all the candleholders should be of the same height, except for the Shamash, which must be a different height so that it is easily recognizable as the "servant". See all Laura's unique Hanukkah Menorot...

The Shabbat candlesticks are lit just before sunset on a Friday night as Jews welcome the Sabbath day of rest into their homes. The lighting of the candlesticks is a reminder to keep the laws of the Sabbath and Laura's Shabbat candlesticks add beauty and atmosphere to this sacred ritual. Laura's candlesticks also make a great gift idea for a newly wed Jewish couple. Traveling Shabbat Candlesticks and a Memorial Candle holder also available from this Judaica gifts store.See all Candlesticks...



A mezuzah (plural: mezuzot) is a piece of parchment inscribed with the Jewish prayer "Shema Yisrael". The mezuzah is contained in a decorative case and affixed to the doorframe of Jewish homes to fulfill the mitzvah (Biblical commandment) to inscribe the words of the Shema "on the doorposts of your house". Laura's mezuzot are created by hand using traditional silversmithing techniques - sawing, hammering, filing and soldering and make a lovely gift for a Jewish wedding or as house-warming present.

A dreidel (Hebrew: Sevivon) is a four-sided spinning top, played with during the Jewish holiday of Hannukah. It is customary for Jewish children to play with the chanukah dreidel in a kind of gambling game. Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet which together form an acronym which means "a great miracle happened there". Laura's Smart Dreidel is an educational, yet funky design and makes a great Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah gift, or could simply be a gift to yourself and all the family.See all Dreidels...
