With vaccinations soaring and new beginnings on the horizon, plenty of celebrations are soon to be underway. As such, I rounded up my favorite rainbow Judaica for the plethora of LGBTQ weddings, b’nei mitzvahs and other joyous events you might be attending when it’s finally safe to do so.
Though the rainbow is often associated with the LGBTQ+ community, everyone can enjoy a little color, especially after a long period of rain.
Places to shop:
If you want to start locally, check out Kolbo, the fine Judaica gallery in Brookline. In addition to its beautiful rainbow ketubot, Kolbo also has a range of glassware, menorahs and mezuzot in every color.
Welcoming someone into a new home? Look no further than Eli Yashar, a Tel Aviv-based glassmaker. His Etsy shop boasts dozens of rainbow mezuzot and other Judaica.
Items to buy:
Another Massachusetts-based business is Shuki’s Judaica, where shoppers can find rainbow wedding glasses for their favorite gay couple’s big day.
For something to enjoy years down the line, consider investing in a rainbow seder plate from Amanda Charles Glass. This plate has the added bonus of being either omnivore or vegetarian friendly, which, if your recipients are lesbians, will be very much appreciated.
JudaicaWebStore has a wide selection of rainbow accoutrements, including this challah tray by Israeli artist Jordana Klein.
Though not explicitly rainbow, this Havdalah set is themed with glass pomegranates and would make a beautiful addition to anyone’s table.
