Six “Hatikva” Challah Covers have just come off my loom here at the Woven Judaica division of Ephods and Pomegranates. They are about 16″ x 20″, handwoven from 100% cotton.
The price is $40.00 each, in our Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/631408775/challah-cover?ref=shop_home_active_1
“Hatikva” which means “The Hope,” was the song of the early Zionist movement, and is now the national anthem of Israel. The design of the Challah Cover is “woven music” – the bands represent the first 8 measures of “Hatikva.” The different colors are different notes, and the width of the bands is the length of the note. This is an artistic rendition, so there are no lines separating notes or measures but you can see how it works here:
The words that go along with it are:
As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning deep in the heart . . .
Kol ode balevav P’nimah – Nefesh Yehudi homiyah . . .
All sales are made through our online Etsy or Amazon shops, but we are happy to take advance reservations.
Some things just aren’t for sale! But these newest tallits will give you an idea of the work I do in Woven Judaica at Ephods & Pomegranates.
These contemporary tallits are woven from 100% mercerized cotton, including the hand-tied tzitzits, and are about 20″ wide by 96″ long. Patterned after Joseph’s legendary “Coat of Many Colors” in Genesis 37:3. (Yes, the Hebrew is debated, but the legend is enduring.) I wove one for me (my Hebrew name is Joseph), one for my Rabbi (whose Hebrew name is also Joseph), and one for one lucky customer.
