Blessing on Canvas Shiviti Hebrew Jewish ART Made In Israel
Dimensions appr. 11.5" x 15.5"
Shiviti (שויתי in Hebrew, also: Shivisi, in the Ashkenazic pronunciation) are meditative representations of a candlestick used in some Jewish communities for contemplation over God's name. They are usually placed over the amud - the podium from which the prayer service is led by the hazzan. A decorated parochet or mizrach tapestry, or a special illustrated page in the siddurwith similar imagery may also serve the same function.
