What is Judaica?
There’s a lot of confusion about exactly what Judaica is. Many people have a vague concept of Judaica as antique synagogue items like menorahs or megillas, or dusty old artifacts on a grandparent’s dresser. Judaica is simply a general term for any artistic, practical or religious item that is a part of Jewish culture.
Judaica products can certainly fulfill ritual and religious needs, but they can also be purely decorative works of art. An abstract oil painting by a modern Israeli artist is just as much Judaica as a handmade silver menorah or etrog box. When it comes to handmade Judaica, there are no limits to styles, influences or materials.
Traditional sterling silver Judaica is still enormously popular, but modern judaica collectors are also buying Judaica gifts made from ceramics, polymer clays, cast concrete, anodized aluminum and other modern materials. The world of Judaica is exciting and full of surprises and is as relevant to Jewish life in 2022 as it was in previous centuries.
What are Judaica items?
Judaica can – and does include – every item with a connection to Jewish life, culture and religion. For convenience we usually think of three broad categories of Judaica:
- Religious and ritual Judaica
- Homeware, silverware and tableware
- Judaica art and design
All of these categories can include modern Judaica products, traditional Judaica and sterling silver Judaica.
Some of the most popular online Judaica gifts include menorahs and hanukiahs, silver Shabbat candlesticks, tallit clips, kiddush cups, paintings of Jerusalem and Safed, mezuzahs, challah boards and Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah gifts like Jewish themed jewelry.
What does Judaica Mean in History?
Possibly the earliest historical items of Judaica were the ritual items used by Moses in the desert. Menorahs have been part of Jewish ritual and tradition since the Exodus, and perhaps before. The Temples and royal courts in biblical Israel were famous for their treasures. The ancient Jewish artists and craftsmen who decorated the Temples were renowned for their skill and devotion. The early Jewish styles were influenced by Greek and Roman art and sometimes walked a fine line between religious orthodoxy and free expression.
Judaica evolved over the millenia and were influenced by local styles and traditions across the diaspora. Both traditional Judaica and modern Judaica contain all kinds of diverse influences. Silver Judaica that features ornate Yemenite filigree work may be the closest in style to the ancient Judaica of King Solomon and King David. Modern Judaica may contain elements of art deco, minimalism, abstract art, and a dozen other cultural influences. Beauty today – as throughout history – is in the eye of the beholder!
What is Judaica Art?
Judaica art includes everything from oil paintings and watercolors, to fabric and needlework designs, and painting on glassware. Modern Judaica art also features brightly colored clay polymer sculptures, abstract designs, modernist styles and some amazing materials like desert sands and spoils from Jerusalem archaeological sites.
Our online Judaica art collection brings you some of Israel’s most talented artists. The range encompasses their massive creativity and passion for Jewish culture and history. Original artwork and art prints are some of the most popular Judaica gifts. A painting of the Wailing Wall, a sunlit Israeli landscape, or an abstract mystical image of Hassidim is a wonderful present. Judaica art looks amazing in any home, lobby or office.
925 Sterling Silver Judaica
Sterling silver Judaica is handcrafted from 925 sterling silver alloy. Jewish craftsmen in Europe learned to use 925 sterling silver from their European counterparts hundreds of years ago. The alloy’s special properties – malleable enough to work easily and robust enough for daily use – make it ideal for silver Judaica like Shabbat candlesticks, kiddush cups, etrog boxes, havdalah sets and silver trays. 925 sterling silver is particularly good for the traditional fine Yemenite silver filigree work that is still hugely popular today.
Sterling silver Judaica is easy to polish to a gleaming shine with any commercial silver polish. Silver Judaica tableware can usually just be wiped down with a damp cloth and then dried and polished. If you’re buying silver Judaica as ornaments, it won’t tarnish rapidly unless you live in a humid environment. An occasional polish is usually enough to keep your silverware beautiful.
