Timna Copper Mezuzah Case
This mezuzah case is named for the copper mines of ancient Israel, with the form being scroll-shaped to evoke the parchment it holds within. The copper is wrapped in silver metal filigree. Copper is a metal that conducts energy. The filigree represents the way energy is filtered through the beauty of tradition and the mitzvah of placing a mezuzah on the doorpost.
As each one is handcrafted, no two are exactly alike.
Materials: Copper, silver metal filigree, capped glass insert to hold parchment
Size: 3 1/2″ x 3/4″ x 3/4″

Meet the Artist: Beth Haber
Beth is a Hudson Valley artist whose work is concerned with issues of archive and transparency - exploring the intermediary space between descriptive observation and the imagination. Her process of assemblage is informed by the “vast sea” of living tradition in dialogue with the world and by the notion of Gilgul (recycling): she considers the implications as archive moves from paper to plastic, recycling the traditional art genre of still life. Beth is a recipient of the New York State Council of the Arts Award. Her work has been shown at Bard College, Vassar College, The Katonah Museum and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and is in museum, university and private collections throughout the world, including that of Shimon Peres.Learn More
