New Arrivals: Gad Almaliah

What's the best way to start the week? New arrivals from one of our favorite artists!

Gad Almaliah has created a new set of hand-embossed, multi-metal artwork. Simple, classy, and stunning, these pieces will be enjoyed by any personality. 

Check out the explanation of each new beautiful piece below!

 

Woman of Valor: Taken from Proverbs 31, the Woman of Valor, known as "Eshet Chayil" in Hebrew, describes a woman who is energetic, righteous, and capable. This beautiful poem can be used to praise a wife, mother, grandmother, or any other adult woman deserving of honor or praise for her actions and achievements. 

Tikun Olam: Tikun Olam, also known as "repairing the world", is a basic concept of Judaism. As written on the print created by Gad Almaliah, Tikun Olam implies that while one is not obligated to complete the work to repair the world, one must not feel free to abandon it.

Kohanim Blessing: The Priestly Blessing reads, "May God bless you and keep you. May God's presence shine upon you and be gracious to you. May God's presence be with you and give you peace." These kind and meaningful words are meant for those who are going through a rite of passage, or  those who deserve praise for their good deeds and accomplishments.

Save One Soul: The Save One Soul blessing, also meant to praise those who have saved others either literally or spiritually, on a large or small scale, reads "Whoever preserves a single soul, scripture ascribes merit to them as though they saved a complete world."

Eitz Chayim: The famous "Tree of Life" is a symbol for many things in the realm of Judaica. The Tree of Life is spoken of in the Book of Genesis, discovered after Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden. To some, the Tree of Life symbolizes the Torah, and to others it represents peace, calm, and wisdom. As written on the Gad Almaliah print, "It is a tree of life for those who grasp it, and all who uphold it are blessed. Its ways are pleasant, and all its paths are peace."
