The symbol of the Tree of Life is used in Judaism in the Torah. The Torah is a " Tree of Life - Etz Hayyim - to all who hold fast to it" and it represents "eternal life planted in our midst." The graphic has been designed with Julie Staller-Pentelnik, a Jewish artist well known for her Hebrew calligraphy and ketubot. With colors of lavender this would be the perfect gift for a bat mitzvah, a birth, a birthday or any special occasion. This also makes a great tzedakah box. Lid removes completely to add or remove tzedakah.
The stained glass iridescent box is hand made. Each piece of glass is hand cut with a glass cutter and then ground on a grinder. Next, the sections of the glass are wrapped in copper foil and soldered to form the box. The lid is sized to overlap the sides of the box for easy lifting and then the lid is beveled. An additional piece of glass is glued under the lid so that the lid can be placed properly on the base of the box and not slide. The lettering is added to the lid at the end of the process.
