Venice has been a large center of Jewish life and culture in the middle ages, with the vibrant Jewish community of those who fled persecution in other parts of Europe and beyond. While not exactly a progressive society, Venice was more tolerant of Jews than other places, and despite their relative isolation, Jews took part in many aspects of Venetian life, such as medicine and commerce. Infamous for being the very first ghetto in the world, the Venetian 'getto' (a word from the Venetian dialect) was a place where Jewish people lived, practiced their religion, and treasured their culture. Masters still work there and create Murano Glass Judaica pieces bringing to life the history of this colorful neighborhood.

This meticulously crafted Rabbi stands as a reminder of the thriving Jewish culture and religious tradition that existed in Venice for over 500 years and symbolizes its continuity and strength. Holding a Kiddush Cup, the ceremonial piece used for a Jewish Sabbath prayer, this Murano Glass rabbi prays for sustaining Jewish heritage and offers hope for better days ahead.

Enjoy this fine Venetian sculpture representing the continuity of Jewish heritage, or give it as a gift to your Jewish friends or loved ones as a special symbol of the endurance and vitality of Jewish culture.

Lampworking is one of the most recognized Murano Glass techniques, which is used by Venetian master artisans to create a variety of Murano glassware such as sculptures, figurines, jewelry and more under a small flame by manipulating special Murano Glass canes and working with basic instruments to achieve elaborate and artistic designs limited only by the artisan's imagination. Making each figurine one at a time, finely crafting every detail, the Venetian masters demonstrate impressive skill and artistic talent, the signature features of authentic Murano Glass.
