* Pyramid Spice Box *
Joy Stember Pyramid Havdalah Spice Box. Havdalah is a ritual that takes place at the end of Shabbat. Just as candles are lit to welcome Shabbat on Friday evenings, havdalah (Hebrew for “separation”) marks the end of Shabbat and separates it from regular weekdays. According to Jewish legend, we each receive an extra soul that makes us especially attuned to the spiritual world during Shabbat. This soul leaves when Shabbat is over and the smell of spices is meant to revive us as it departs.
This Spice box is fabricated from pewter and brass. The lid is hinged in the back with a brass hinge. The front is adorned with a brass hand-pierced Star of David.
