It will bear branches and produce fruit (Ezekiel 17:23)From generation to generation, Jews have fulfilled the mitzvah of bringing together the fruit of a beautiful tree with palm fronds, myrtle and willow branches. Maintaining the beauty and fragrance of the Etrog is paramount as even the slightest blemish disqualifies this beautiful fruit- thus was born the custom of storing the Etrog in an elegant silver case. The Arco Etrog Box brings us back to the roots of our nation; branching into tribes and families- like the branches and leaves of a fruit tree. The ornate decorations that adorn the Arco Etrog Box are hand-made by Hazorfim’s expert silversmiths who use their superior skill to gently form pure silver. There is no more fitting compliment to the fruit of the beautiful tree as the beautiful Etrog lies waiting on a bed of pure silver- ready to beautify the mitzvah.
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.
