Yahrzeit Candelholder for Savta
Yahrzeit Candelholder for Savta
copper, found objects
2 5/8" x 2 5/8" x 2 1/4"

This Yahrzeit candleholder was made to honor my mother-in-law, Alice Haya Lotate Kinberg z"l.
Savta, as my children and I called her for the last 5 years, was a strong, giving, and inspiring woman. She had no attachment to material objects, but I hope this candleholder would have made her smile. I miss her dearly.
The objects decorating the candleholder include some of her jewelry, a rhinestone chamsa bracelet she gifted my daughter, and some antique buttons. She was always mending and sewing gifts by hand - blankets, tallit, pajamas...
