9. Gold Lid Scroll Mezuzah case by Laura Cowan
A popular wedding gift to bring blessing to a new home is a Mezuzah case, enclosing the holy handwritten scroll. Our favorite is this one from Laura Cowan – a talented British designer living in Tel Aviv. The stunning gold colored top and base contrasts with a transparent glass cover under which is an exquisitely printed Mezuzah text in the scribe’s font. (No substitute of course for a Kosher Mezuzah scroll that must still be inserted inside).

What could be a more meaningful wedding gift than a Home Blessing or Prayer plaque crafted by Dvora Black in the Holy Land. She decorates them with dried colorful flowers she has personally picked in the Judean Hills where she lives and works.
