This beautiful Challa Board For the Shabbat table, was designed By the Israel Museum prize winning artist Zelig Segal.
It is made out of anodized Aluminum and comes in various colors. Designed in the shape of a Shabbat Challa , it depicts the 6 days of the week in Hebrew letters all around, and the seventh day (Shabbat ) in the center.
Zelig Segal was born to an Orthodox family in Jerusalem. In a neigborhood that mimicked an 18th-century Polish shtetl,
he imbibed the ancient sources of Jewish law and lore, the year-long cycle of ceremony and liturgy,
the flowing forms and mystical meaning of Hebrew letters. At the age of 16, with long ritual sidelocks
and a personal scholarship from Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, Zelig left the yeshiva for the art
academy. There, in the metalsmithing workshops of Bezalel, he found the ideal medium to express
and interpret traditional Jewish concepts in three dimensions. For half a century he has remained true
to this medium, designing masterpieces, one after another, that are now internationally recognized as
landmarks of Judaica. Timeless in concept, some of the brilliant works presented here were designed
decades ago and executed now for the first time thanks to the vision of Ely Levisohn.
