The Exodus Box

This is a wood ark-like box with 5 passover-related chotchkies (charms) by my good friend Daniel Riccio

The box is made of yew wood and is engraved with the symbols of the tribes and the inscription "out of Egypt... with signs and wonders" and a Hebrew inscription from the same passage The chtochkies represent the burning bush, Moses, the tablets, the desert tabernacle, and the two fellows bearing a yoke of giant grapes from the promised land..

Also available in bloodwood and maple...$72


resin dreidls -- these dreidls are made from a square of beautiful decorative resin and a metal center spindle (aluminum and brass). Available in red topo, blue topo, gray graphite, blue graphite, gray water, blue water, and shell. Letters appear in gold. The dreidl spins quite freely.
