Yair Emanuel is a much-loved Jerusalem-based Judaica artist. He creates unique, functional art to beautify any occasion, like his travel candlesticks, made from wood, shaped like a Star of David, and decorated with charming, colorful birds.
The candlesticks are designed for Shabbat travel and are easy to carry wherever you go. When not in use, the two candlesticks fit together to create a pretty decor item in the shape of a Star of David.
The design features colorful exotic birds who will gently alight and bring a touch of whimsy with them. The wooden candlesticks are handpainted using acrylic paint and varnished to a highly lacquered shine.
The candlestick set securely holds a tealight candle, so you can enjoy lighting candles on Shabbat wherever you are!
Emanuel’s Judaica is a lovely way to bring the spirit of Israel into your home. Look no further when you need a special gift for friends or loved ones!
