A Kiddush Fountain – An Elegant Way to Dress Up Your Shabbat and Holiday Table
A kiddush fountain is an elegant way to dress up your Shabbat and holiday table. It allows you to simplify the way in which wine is served by removing the need to pour each individual cup of wine for each guest at the table. This makes the recitation of the kiddush blessing during Shabbat and Yom Tov even more meaningful and exciting for kids and those who are young at heart.
The head of the family fills a large central cup over which the kiddush prayer is recited and from there, it flows into a group of eight smaller cups that can be passed around the table to each person at the table. This creates a moment of awe and delight as everyone watches the flow of wine from the center cup into each of the small cups on the fountain. This stunning piece of Judaica was designed by Jerusalem based artisan Yair Emanuel and is made from nickel.
It is a beautiful example of modern craftsmanship with a traditional aesthetic. The entire fountain is a perfect blend of elegance, simplicity, and precision. It is a work of art and makes a statement about Jewish tradition that has survived the tumults of history and continues to evolve into our future. It is a reflection of people like silversmith Jizchak Bier who are still working today at over ninety years old out of a combination of love for their craft and faith that the practice of our ancient traditions will continue to endure. kiddush fountain
