Noah’s Ark and Olive Branch Tzedakah Box
Emily Rosenfeld’s charity box is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional Jewish tzedakah box. The modern sensibility of the design together with its use of sustainable bamboo reinforces the idea of carrying ancient practice into our current lives. The Noah’s ark design on the lid is joyous and symbolic; the olive branch for peace on the box meshes perfectly the mitzvah of giving tzedakah. Emily hopes that this box serves both as a literal repository for funds and as a symbolic container for the actions we can take in the aid of others.
The separate lid is held in place with magnets.
