Retro Pomegranate Challah Cover with Gold Trim for Shabbat and Holidays
This wonderfully retro design is perfect for Rosh Hashanah with its bright red pomegranates and fuchsia-colored seeds!
It is customary in Israel to eat pomegranate at the Rosh Hashanah meal, as each of the seeds represents one of the 613 commandments we are to follow. Of course, the pomegranate is also one of the seven species of the land of Israel mentioned in the Bible, making this design as meaningful as it is beautiful.
The festive retro pomegranate design circles the Hebrew words “for the honor of Shabbat and festivals (Yom Tov).” The image has been screen printed onto a cotton-twill mix, and Barbara recommends hand washing to preserve its beauty and warm iron on the reverse side. The challah cover has a rich gold border adding an elegant yet festive touch.
Give yourself a treat with this lovely contemporary challah cover or surprise a friend or loved one with this challah cover as a hostess or housewarming gift!

Retro Pomegranate Challah Cover
Barbara Shaw was born in Sydney, Australia, and made the bold decision to follow her heart and move to Israel in 1986.
Barbara has an incredible eye for color and design. When looking for unique, made-in-Israel gifts, she discovered that what she was looking for did not exist. She immediately went to work and designed bright, uniquely Israeli aprons, dish towels, and tote bags that she could give as gifts.
In 2008 she formally established her business. She expanded her line to include designs on ceramics, serving-ware, wood, glass, stationary, perspex, baby gifts, a Yiddish line, and t-shirts.
Barbara’s goal is to create beautiful, practical modern items that capture the spirit of Israel. Her tag line is “Jewish gifts that smile;) And it is hard to imagine not feeling joyful when looking at her functional art.
Barbara’s diverse team, which now includes her son Boaz, who is working on business development with his mom, is committed to excellence. All of Barbara’s gorgeous creations are made in her Jerusalem workshop.
