This yad features a squirrel sitting atop an acorn-adorned tree branch. Reflective of nature in its purest form, the high quality of craftsmanship of this yad is shown in its minute and careful details. Small animals such as squirrels were often seen in some of the earliest illustrations in Jewish manuscripts, as well as the squirrel taking part in many folk tales. Handmade in Rhode Island.
Forgotten Judaica is a company comprising three siblings: Lisa Van Allsburg, Laura M Babai and David Morrison. Together, they sought to find antique ritual Judaica crafted by traditional Jewish artisans. Their mission, rooted in the idea of "Figurative Judaica," is to make the items used in everyday practices of Jewish life available to the public. They have traveled throughout Israel and Europe, discovering Judaica in museums and private collections, and they have created Forgotten Judaica, their collection, which is in memory of everything they have seen and in the rich tradition of Jewish artisans.
