Sanctifying Shabbat and Jewish festivals is a holy endeavor, and as with all special occasions, it is a pleasure to make them as beautiful as possible. You can bring a touch of the colors of Israel to the Shabbat table with this lovely Kiddush cup and saucer set.
Emanuel’s beautifully decorated kiddush cup and saucer bring a touch of the serene calm of the Israeli blue skies to your Shabbat and holiday table. He has decorated a simple metal cup with a multi-shaded blue mosaic against a fresh white background.
The design is reminiscent of the blue Israeli sky and the Mediterranean Sea in a pattern that harkens back to the mosaics that have been excavated all across Israel.

Yair Emanuel is a prolific artist and creator of Israel’s most recognized and loved Judaica. His creative use of colors, textures, and images from the land of Israel makes his beautiful works of art instantly recognizable.
Born on Kibbutz Sha’alvim in central Israel, Emanuel developed his artistic talent as a young man at the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. While studying in Jerusalem, he fell in love with the Holy City and decided to make it his home. His studio is located in the heart of Jerusalem. The city influences many of his beautiful works of art, decorated with scenes from the Old City of Jerusalem. His other works celebrate the seven species of the land of Israel with charming depictions of wheat, barley, rye, pomegranates, grapes, olives, and figs.
Emanuel’s designs are infused with his love for Judaism, a respect for tradition blended with his joyful embrace of color and innovation. His Judaica is represented in various mediums from painted wood, textiles, and metal. Each piece that he makes is unique while recognizably ‘Emanuel.’
