Israel Mezuzah by The Gary Rosenthal Collection Be the first one to write a review
Gorgeous marbled olive wood features a front of blue and white glass. The Star of David is laser etched into brilliant dichroic glass in the center and a 24kt gold shin is at the top. Because, as Gary always believed, beauty is not enough, a portion of sales of this piece is donated to Magen David Adom (the Israeli Red Cross).
The Gary Rosenthal Collection stands with Israel and they are saddened by the horrific violence affecting so many in the region. Gary always believed that making art was a blessing, and using it for social action was a moral imperative. Moved by the destruction and suffering on all fronts, they have created a new mezuzah suffused with the spirit of Israel and affirming both the sanctity of life and the aspiration for peace.
This mezuzah is the first of their offerings to incorporate olive wood, first reference in the Torah in the story of Noah when a dove returned to the ark carrying an olive branch—a symbol of peace and restoration in the wake of immense devastation. To this day, “extending an olive branch” means to seek peace amidst a hostile situation. The top and bottom of the Israel Mezuzah are set at an angle of 18 degrees—the numeric expression of the Hebrew word “Chai” meaning “life”.
