Hanukkah / Chanukkah is the Festival of Light - and this Menorah will function for your candle lighting purposes, but you can proudly display this gorgeous piece of art all year long if you desire!
The metal charms used in the artwork symbolize the Jewish people - as individuals, each Star of David (Jewish Star), Hamsa Hand, and Evil Eye has unique value and beauty - but when gathered as a whole they combine to become a special piece of artwork - like the Jewish people! The jewelry-worthy charms have the hanging loops left on to remind us of the importance to connect to one another and be kind to our fellow Jews and humans.

As this piece is handmade and uses pieces unique to it, please expect some artisanal quality when received. The finishing is desired and intentional.

Who is behind Jewish Joy?
In 2016, Channan Tzvi (Kenny) started collecting Hamsas and began his journey reconnecting to his Jewish culture via the appreciation of this ancient symbol from a design based approach.
Hamsas of Munkatch, his design studio was founded in 2020 as a way to explore a personal connection to Judaism; and through his research he amassed an extensive collection of Judaica objects that Kenny realized could be shared with others, to allow them to experience some of the same joyful connection to the traditions - hence jewishjoy.co.
Why no Challah Boards?
There are many ways to celebrate Judaism - and this website is a bit different than your classic Judaica store that might only carry silver kiddish cups and glass mezuzahs. These types of items already exist and are beautiful pieces of art - so we hope to compliment those pieces that you may already have in your homes with a variety of Judaica enhancements.
Our mission is to provide items to our customers that inspire a personal connection to the joys of Judaism. We aim to achieve this by focusing our efforts on common traditions and cultural highlights of Judaism and celebrating them in an inclusive manner.
We try to source from other small businesses and Judaica artists who create one of a kind items.
A Bissle Ungepatchka | a little over the top
An important part of the joy that Channan Tzvi (Kenny) found in Judaism stems from the artistic imagery that can be seen throughout history on a variety of artifacts. People have always celebrated their love for Judaism through art and design and we continue that tradition.
With that in mind, we also embrace some of our Hungarian heritage and acknowledge that sometimes you need a bissle ungepatchka to liven up an otherwise contemporary living environment and reinvigorate your mind.
We know that not everyone will appreciate all of our pieces, but we hope that those of you who enjoy them LOVE THEM!
