Three “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 $45.00 each, in our Etsy Shop:
“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 . . .
