Product Description

In the flame appear the Hebrew letters that form the words “ish” and “isha” or in English, “man” and “woman”. The two letters, “yud” and “heh” are shared by both words and make up the name of G-d. Without His name the words “ish” (man) and “isha” (woman) become only “aish” (fire). (Chazal)

The verse in the candle, whose explanation appears in the profiles on either side and below, is from Breisheet Rabbah (Midrash). The Hebrew and English passage inscribed along the outer edge is taken from the Zohar. This is a beautiful wedding gift or a Jewish wedding anniversary blessing gift. Show your spouse you love him or her with Hebrew papercuts, or offer the young couple their first, stunning piece of art with papercut Judaica.


“There is no man without woman; there is no woman without man, and together they cannot be without G-d. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.”
