When it comes to the Judaica world, we’ve come a long way from velvet, gold threaded Bar Mitzvah Kippahs and kitschy Yiddish humor books—though those will always have a special place in our hearts!
The Judaica world has become a new place of self-expression for the Jewish home. So if you’re in the middle of planning your Jewish wedding, keep in mind that you don’t have to settle for loud or tacky Judaica. If you’ve got a personal style, there is an artist in the Judaica world who has something to offer you.
And that’s largely thanks to being able to purchase Judaica from artists all around the world, including Israel. From Etsy and Pinterest, to online Judaica stores and even Amazon, you have access to much more than your neighborhood Judaica store.
So what are the hottest selling items in the Judaica world today?
Kippahs are still up there in the Judaica world, and actually when you’re planning your Jewish wedding, making a bulk order of customized kippahs is a great way to give your friends and family a keepsake from your Special Day.
You can find everything from plain velvet kippahs in different colors and shades, to crochet, knitted, and even suede kippahs. Great customization ideas that we can recommend are engraving your names and the wedding date on the inside of the Kippah, or use the monogragram you created for your wedding invitations. It can be fun, meaningful, or anything in between!
Holiday-specific items like Seder plates and Menorahs are also very popular items in the Judaica world today. If you’re interested in opening a wedding registry at a local or online Judaica store, you can even have the option of coordinating your Judaica to keep up with the decor of your home.
And lastly, gorgeous Ketubahs, or Jewish marriage contracts have actually become an entire genre of Jewish art in the Judaica world. Works by artists like Amalya Nini are changing the standards of art in today’s Judaica world with breathtaking Ketubahs that are made to last your entire lifetime together. Using laser cut methods, with pops of color and silver-and gold-leafing, her award-winning designs are making their way into the homes and hearts of Jewish couples around the world.
While you’re planning your Jewish wedding, remember: the Judaica world has come a long way. Don’t feel that you have to settle for anything. Find Judaica that matches your natural sense of style, so that you can build your Jewish home in a way that’s most meaningful to you.
