Yair Emanuel is a much-loved Jerusalem-based Judaica artist. He creates unique, functional art to beautify any occasion. His Handpainted Wooden Small Pomegranate Mezuzah is a fun and beautiful way to observe the mitzvah of hanging a mezuzah in your home.
Pomegranates play a vital role in Judaism and the Holy Land. The ruby red fruit is one of the Seven Species of the Holy Land mentioned in the Bible, “a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey;” Deuteronomy 8:8
Emanuel and his team hand-paint each mezuzah with bright red pomegranates using multiple layers of acrylic paint and varnish to create a waterproof lacquered finish.
The Pomegranate Mezuzah is a charming way to bring the spirit of the Holy Land into your home. Please note the mezuzah should only be used inside your home. It comes with double-sided tape along the back to securely affix the mezuzah to your door.
Emanuel’s artwork always makes thoughtful gifts for friends and loved ones, perfect for holidays, housewarming, and weddings!
