Rectangular Tzedakah Box by Joy Stember
In Judaism, tzedakah refers to the religious obligation to do what is right and just, which Judaism emphasizes are important parts of living a spiritual life. In practice, most Jews carry out tzedakah by donating a portion of their income to charitable institutions. A Tzedakah box is used to collect that money and keep it safe until it is given to charity.
This rectangular Tzedakah box is fabricated from pewter and brass. The top lifts up to remove the money. SIZE: 5.75" H x 3.25" W x 2" D.

More about Joy Stember
When Joy returned home from her Taglit Birthright trip to Israel in 2010, she felt a stronger connection to Israel, her culture and her identity as an artist. This journey profoundly changed her perspective and led her to discover her true passion. She began to focus on creating contemporary Judaica full-time and opened the Joy Stember Metal Arts Studio, LLC. This decision has not only provided great personal fulfillment but also the opportunity to share her craft with the world.
The clean lines and repetitive nature in urban landscapes inspire her work, as well as mid-century design. She uses a variety of metals such as pewter, brass, bronze, silver and copper and each piece is lovingly fabricated by scoring and folding sheets of pewter to make 3-dimensional works of art. The gorgeous textures are pulled from many influences and are embossed into the metal. As a designer and maker, her intent is to encourage the importance of American high-end craft in the modern home by creating contemporary heirlooms for a new generation of collectors.
