Jewish women light candles every Shabbat, and Israel’s Jerusalem-based Judaica artist, Emanuel, has created a colorful pomegranate design travel-ready Shabbat candlestick box.
The candlesticks are designed as a practical small closed box. The bright blue box is painted with cheerful ruby-red pomegranates. The small travel box swivels open to hold a pair of votive candles. The candles sit in metal-lined cups for safety.
Pomegranates are a beautiful way to bring a touch of the Holy Land into your home. They are one of the seven sp[ecies of the land of Israel mentioned in the Bible. Pomegranates grow across Israel and have come to symbolize blessing, abundance, and fertility.
Emanuel’s travel candlestick is a lovely way to beautify the mitzvah (commandment) to light candles on Shabbat even when your travels take you far from home. This lovely pomegranate-themed travel candlestick makes a thoughtful gift for loved ones.
Do not leave burning candles unattended.

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.’
