Israelis who are born in the Holy Land are called “sabras.” A sabra is a cactus that grows abundantly in Israel. It is covered with spikey thorns, but the fruit is well worth the effort. It is sweet and delicious, just like Israelis. We may be a bit rough on the outside, but we are soft and sweet inside!
Dorit created this happy laser-cut metal sabra as a fun way to celebrate the Israeli national character. There is no gift (for yourself or a loved one) that is more Israeli than this charming Sabra happily featuring the blue and white Israeli flag!
Dorit’s Sabra is a must-have addition to your home for those who love Israel!

Dorit is a sabra, a native-born Israeli. She was raised in a religious Zionist home and is a practicing religious Jewish woman.
For Dorit, her Jewish faith is the wellspring of her art. She harvests ideas and concepts for creation from her religious life. She is inspired by religious texts, verses, prayers, and blessings and loves to incorporate them into her designs.
She loves creating products that will enhance the lives of her community of fans. Dorit began her career in commercial graphic design but found that her hobby of designing and creating Judaica was growing, and she decided to take a leap of faith and make her hobby her profession!
Dorit and her team utilize techniques and tools from graphics, traditional laser cutting, and patterned decorative work. She includes Jewish texts from her upbringing. She and her team create a unique and fascinating combination of shapes and hues, decorations, and letters old with new, traditional with modern. It is vital to Dorit that every product she makes is innovative, containing features or utilizing materials and techniques which have never been used before.
Her studio is located in Petach Tikva, adjacent to her home. She likes to create a family atmosphere for her dedicated team. Together they create, dream, work, and give thanks to God that they can use their gifts and talents in a meaningful way.
