“As the deer longs for brooks of water” (Psalms42:2)
It all began here. Jews from all over the world come to the Hazorfim workshop in Hevel Modi’in- the location where the Hasmonean rebellion broke out. They come here to choose the piece which will light up their window; a hanukiah from the House of Hazorfim- available in dozens of styles and sizes, each elegant and handmade from the finest sterling silver. The Arco Compatilo Hanukkah is a rare piece which combines two of Hazorfim’s favorite collections: Arco and Compatilo. The result brings together two powerful natural elements: water and earth. Hazorfim’s skilled silversmiths sculpt branches adorned with decorations which imitate leaves and tree roots. These delicate decorations symbolize the family and continuity from one generation to the next. The sculpted decorations of riverbeds which cascade down the hanukiah demand a particular skill and craftsmanship. The result is a stunning combination of the elements: of the pure tree with the living water. This is truly a rare and inspiring Hanukiah.
The Arco Collection is inspired by the form of the tree, rooted in the ground and standing tall. The resulting pieces are constructed on bases of firm, well-established arches which rise up to form a collection of superior silverware. Each piece is adorned with delicate and intricate decorations styled on the leaves of a tree.
Hazorfim’s skilled silver artists patiently hand-sculpt the body of each piece and the decorations which adorn it; an exact process demanding skill and attention to the smallest of details. The time dedicated to each piece in the Arco Collection symbolizes the effort and thought devoted to nurturing and strengthening the family unit- honoring the mitzvot and reminding us of the importance of strong family roots.
