All of the impressive Judaica in the Jewish Gift Place collection has been created by talented artists who pride themselves in their work. New items are constantly being added to the collection, so check back often. We travel to gifts shows 2-3 times a year to discover new artists and it always a great joy to meet the artists behind the beautiful handmade Judaica. The incredible creativity, diversity of materials, brilliant colors, shiny metals, and interesting interpretations of Judaica used for Jewish holidays, makes each piece a well-thought out piece of art.
Jewish Symbols in Jewelry
Our Jewish artists have created jewelry pieces with the important symbols of Judaism and have turned them into beautiful necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Many of the Jewish symbols in our jewelry collection touch the hearts of people across all nationalities and religions. Symbols like the evil eye date back almost 3,000 years to ancient Greece and Rome and is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world. Wearing an evil eye as an amulet is believed to provide protection against evil forces. Read our article, What is The Evil Eye? to learn more about this ancient amulet. Don't miss our entire evil eye jewelry collection!
Another very popular symbol is the hamsa, which is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths, it is a protective sign. It brings its wearer happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. Read our article, What is The Hamsa Hand? to learn more about this ancient Middle Eastern amulet. Don't miss our entire hamsa jewelry collection.
Personalized Judaica and Jewish Gifts
We work with three artists who personalize their pieces. Almost all of the pieces in the Gary Rosenthal Collection can be personalized. This makes the gift given for the occasion of a wedding, a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, or an honor, even more meaningful. Emily Rosenfeld stamps her pieces with a Hebrew letter to personalize her pieces. Naturally Wood Creations makes the most popular menorah that we sell - personalized name menorah made from Melissa & Doug blocks. This menorah is a best seller year-round as a Hanukkah gift and as a new baby gift.

Excellent Customer Service Is Our Goal
At Jewish Gift Place, we are committed to providing you with excellent customer service. All of our Judaica is handmade, and although we have many pieces in stock and ready to ship right away, many pieces are made to order, so please allow some time to make and ship your item. Depending on the artist, it can take from one to four weeks to make your Jewish gift. If you are in a rush, please let us know. Our artists are very responsive, and it is not often that we ask to rush a piece, so when we do, they try their best to accommodate the customer and their needs.
