These stunningly beautiful, handcrafted kiddush cups are hand-carved from solid pieces of olive wood found in Israel. Fill them with wine or grape juice and use them during the Sabbath blessing, holiday meals, or communion.
Each individual kiddush cup, made exclusively for My Olive Tree, varies slightly in color and natural wood grain design. These exquisite kiddush cups each measure approximately 6” high x 3.2” wide.
Kiddush means “sanctification” in Hebrew. So, you can use these beautifully handcrafted olive wood kiddush cups during the Sabbath blessing, holiday meals, or communion, declaring the holiness of the Lord and setting apart a time to remember Him.
“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’”—1 Corinthians 11:23-25 (emphasis added)
Fill it with wine or grape juice and use it during the Sabbath blessing, holiday meals, or communion.
The Qiesieh family, the artisans who make these beautifully handcrafted kiddush cups as a way to provide for themselves, own souvenir shops in both Bethlehem and Jerusalem. For many years they have made their living crafting olive wood items such as figurines and nativity scenes for tourists.
However, when the coronavirus hit in 2020, tourism stopped and so did sales in their shops.
Since this time the Qiesiehs barely had enough food to fill their stomachs, so they were forced to barter their beautiful olive wood for meat.
My Olive Tree heard about their plight and reached out to help. George and Elijah, the two Qiesieh brothers who own their souvenir shops and do all of the woodworking themselves, were thrilled when we asked them to create these unique, one-of-a-kind, olive wood kiddush cups, exclusively made for the My Olive Tree online store.
Your purchase of every kiddush cup helps the Qiesieh family in Israel overcome financial needs in this difficult time by providing the extra income necessary to put food on their table.
