Judaica Silver Frequently Asked Questions

Judaica silver is any piece of silverware that has been created to be used in any type of Jewish ceremony, ritual, or in affiliation with any aspect of Jewish religious life and customs; By nature of the precious qualities of silver itself, the item can be considered to be integral to the ceremony or proceedings. For example, it is believed by those of the Jewish faith that to use an especially beautiful object while celebrating or performing a mitzvah is a method of showing your praise to God and honouring his commandments.

Because of this, Judaism has a long, ancient tradition of appointing craftsmen and silversmiths to create these important and crucially beautiful objects with which to praise God and demonstrate their faith.

Myer Myers

Myers was an 18th century silver and goldsmith in New York City, who produced highly ornamented rococo designs and grew his business into an internationally renowned name. His produced works provide valuable information today, not only in regards to the craftsmanship, but the patronage, colonial Judaism and changing cultures within Revolutionary America. Myers was so respected by his peers that in 1786 he was elected as chairman of the Gold and Silversmiths’ Society. His work is extraordinarily collectable and is highly sought after.


Hazorfim are a large retailer, whose company was started in 1952 by Yosef Merdinger after his arrival in Isreal in 1949. His son, Yakov, soon began creating his own pieces of silverware at the age of 13, and in 1983 the Merdinger family were able to buy out their partners and become sole owners of the company. Now, the Hazorfim name is synonymous with modern silver Judaica of high quality.

Racism and prejudice played a major role in the relatively recent history of the Jewish faith, and with Judaica silver being as precious and naturally valuable as it is, this particular type of artisan creation was highly desirable- as was the wealth that the companies who created these pieces accrued.

Before the advent of a more civilised and lawful society, Judaica silver was frequently forcibly taken from the members of the Jewish community who either owned or had created it.

Silver was the preferred material for making ceremonial Judaica items such as Hanukkah lamps and Kiddush cups. Silver has been used in the creation of religious objects for thousands of years, however for a myriad of historical and social reasons, little of the Judaica silver that was created before the sixteenth century has survived.

One of the forms of persecution that the Judaica silversmiths suffered was that they were not allowed to join the silver or goldsmiths’ guilds within Europe, this meant that Gentile makers were often crafting the ceremonial silver for Jewish families and synagogues. A result of this is there were frequently mistakes made concerning the Hebrew inscriptions which would feature on the Judaica silver.
