This absolutely gorgeous hand washing cup will brighten any kitchen! It features a cheerful and colorful floral motif with the Hebrew words Netilat Yedayim (Washing of the hands). For centuries, Jews have used these unique washing basins to purify their hands both when rising in the morning and before eating a bread meal. Now you can connect to this ancient tradition in elegant style, while also adding a wonderful adornment to the home.
The blessing in Hebrew to say after washing of the hands is: Baruch Atah Adon-ai Elo-hainu Melech HaOlam, Asher Kidshanu BMitzvotav Viztivanu Al Nitilas Yadayim (Abundant are You, Hashem, Our G-d, King of the Universe, Who has santicitied us with His commandments, and has commanded us in the washing of the hands).
Each item from Armenian Ceramics is skillfully crafted from ceramic clay according to traditional methods in the Land of Israel. Once it is formed, each item is baked at a high heat (1000°C) until it hardens. It is then masterfully hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint, allowing it to maintain its natural vibrant colors. After, it is reheated and then coated with a fine layer of glazing. After this traditional process is completed, the final product is sure to become a treasured part of your home decor for many years to come!
