Alhambra Yizkor Candle

A special focus to honor your loved one as you light your yahrzeit candle. Hand-crafted with the intention of bringing healing and acknowledging the living connection you share with the one who is no longer present physically in this world.

The geometric pattern which includes the Magen David in it's center is symbolic of the unity of life here and beyond. Six is a number of continuation, continuity. Below that pattern is the Hebrew word “L'Chayim” - “to Life”. The word “chayim” itself is a plural word. It refers to something about life that is both here & there, within and without, now and beyond. The aromatic cedar which forms the yahrzeit candle platform adds the sensual sense that accompanies remembering. Many cultures identify the cedar tree with the Tree of Life. As an essential oil, cedar brings calm and balance to the mind, clarity to the heart and healing to the spirit.

Each copper backplate is signed with the 4 branched shin, the logo of Studio Moresca Copperworks.

For this Alhambra design three colors are available: Topaz Blue, Carnelian and Emerald. Please be sure to indicate your choice in the comment box.
