Religious Artifacts

Click on one of the items to the right to explore the history, meaning and rituals associated with various Jewish articles and objects.

The practice of Judaism involves many different kinds of ritual objects, ceremonial garb, and symbolic items. Some of these artifacts are traditional or customary, but many others are based on specific divine commandments recorded in the Bible. Examples of the former are the yarmulke and the Star of David; the latter include the mezuzah, the tallit, and the tefilin.
