These boxes are not only beautiful and unique, they are meant to be used. The Tzadakkah boxes have a slot in the top to put money into and the bottom opens to empty the box when full.

Tzedakah can be described as the giving of charity as part of the process of seeking a just world. It is said that Israel will be redeemed by its acts of charity. Isaiah, as read for the Yom Kippur Haftorah, states "Is this the fast I look for? A day of self affliction?...Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and to bring the homeless poor into your house?" The charity boxes have Tzedakah carved in Hebrew on the sides and are surrounded by the Temple Pillars and a Crown. The Temple Pillars represent the wisdom of Solomon. The Keter (Crown) Torah represents the crown of a good name for those that give Tzedakah generously.

A mezuzah case holds the parchment inscribed with Hebrew verses from the Torah, including the verse “And you shall inscribe these words upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates”. A mezuzah is traditionally affixed to the doorframe in a Jewish house.

One mezuzah case features a Biblical name of God, Shaddai, written in Hebrew. Shaddai, translated as “almighty”, is also an acronym for “Shomer Daltot Yisrael”, translated as “Guardian of Israel’s Doors.

The second mezuzah features the Shema, the most often cited of all Jewish prayers, declaring the Oneness of God.
