Judaica Jewelry in Silver and Gold Celebrates Hannukah

Whether you spell it Hanukkah, Hannukah, Chanukkah or one of the many other variations, Chanukah is  a Jewish holiday celebrated for eight days and nights. It starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, which coincides with late November-late December on the secular calendar.  This year it begins December 6th and runs through December 14th.

 

In Hebrew, the word “hanukkah” means “dedication.” Generous Gems has a full line of 14k Gold and Sterling Silver Judaica jewelry. Gifts that celebrate culture, history and spirituality.  Browse our selection of charms and pendants. We offer many styles and varieties to choose from. Personal gifts, carrying personal meaning.  One such item is the dreidel, seen in silver on the bracelet below:

The traditional Chanukah dreidel (spinning top) is a throwback to the times when the Greek armies of King Antiochus controlled the Holy Land, before the Maccabees defeated them and sent them packing. The powerful regime passed a series of laws outlawing the study of Torah and many of the mitzvot. The Jews were compelled to take their Torah learning “underground,” for they knew that a Jew without Torah is like a fish out of water.

 

Jewish children resorted to learning Torah in outlying areas and forests. Even this plan was not foolproof, for the enemy had many patrols. The children therefore brought along small tops that they would quickly pull out and play with after secreting away their texts, so that they could pretend to be merely playing games.
