This gorgeous challah cover will add a dash of color and style to your Sabbath and holiday table!  A beautiful raw silk design embroidered with a delightful motif and adorned with the words Shabbat VeYom Tov in Hebrew. A wonderful blend of ancient tradition and artistic design. Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a mixture of the old and the new, characterize Emanuel’s work.

Artist Yair Emanuel, a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, lives and works in Jerusalem. Born on Kibbutz Sha’alvim, he grew up in Jerusalem in an Orthodox home, and later in life adopted a more pluralistic approach to Judaism. This background influenced Emanuel’s style of Judaic art, which is based upon a fusion of traditional motifs and ancient Jewish manuscripts with modern and oriental art. Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a mixture of the Old and the New characterize Emanuel’s work, which is designed and crafted in his Jerusalem studio.

The principal techniques he employs encompass painting on silk, hand embroidery, raw-silk appliqué and painting on wood. Among the staff in his studio are new immigrants and mentally disabled employees. A portion of the studio’s profits is donated to charity.
