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".

MODERN SHABBAT CANDLESTICKS
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...
