Emanuel’s beautifully embroidered matzah cover is sized to accommodate both machine and handmade matzah for your seder table.
The inside of the matzah cover has three individual lined compartments to house the matzah during the Seder night.
The cover is embroidered with the question that opens the Seder, “What makes this night different from all other nights?” The Hebrew word for Passover is stitched in the center, and it is surrounded by the words for the elements of the Seder represented on the Seder plate.
Emanuel has chosen classic imagery of pomegranates for the cover. The pomegranate, a symbol of blessing and abundance, is perfect for the Passover meal!
Emanuel’s are packaged by members of Shekel Community Services, an Israeli not-for-profit organization that provides work for adults with special needs.

Pomegranate Passover Matzah Cover
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.’
