We create unique Judaica products from high quality sterling silver. Our items include kiddush cups, mezuzot, candlesticks, menorahs, handwashing cups, dreidels, jewellery and more.
Each of our items is hand-crafted so it is exclusive and unique. Our products are moulded into shape, then embellished with traditional filigree detail. Filigree is a specialty of Yemenite silversmithing art: every intricate piece of filigree is weaved, twisted or contoured by hand out of fine silver threads before being soldered on to the piece separately, creating traditional patterns and shapes. We also use authentic, high quality precious and semi-precious gemstones to decorate our items, and to ensure that the flavor of the wine stays authentic, we coat the inner bowl of all of our kiddush cups with 24-carat gold.
We accept special requests and orders to create individual pieces. These might be designed according to a personal style or with individualized decoration and characteristics. Furthermore, we can have your item engraved with a personal message or greeting in almost every language. If your item is a present, we are more than happy to assist you in creating a very unique piece of art.
Our store is located in Mamilla, an exclusive shopping boulevard close to the Old City in Jerusalem. Our exclusive silver products are also available in our online store. Please contact us with any inquiries you might have.
We thank you for your interest, and greatly appreciate your support of small businesses in Israel.
Our History and Our Work
Welcome to Shevach Silversmiths in Mamilla, Jerusalem.
The Shevach family have been silversmiths for generations. In 1929, our young grandparents and their baby son left their home and families in Yemen and escaped on a treacherous journey across deserts and seas to reach the Holy Land. Our grandfather brought with him the artisan skills of traditional Yemenite silversmithing – distinguished by its specialized filigree – that he had learned from his forefathers, and passed it down to his sons and grandsons. Now, these sacred silver items, so essential for the spiritual and traditional existence of the Jewish faith, are hand-made in its spiritual centre, Jerusalem.
Our father, Kitov Shevach, was born in Jerusalem in 1942. He learned the craft of silversmithing from his father, and our generation has learned it from him. Our expertise has developed, and our products now – like Jerusalem itself – are a fusion of ancient and modern: old meets new, and East meets West, in a heritage that brings together the best of both worlds and reflects the contemporary Jewish experience.
