Due to the nature of handcrafted work, subtle variations are natural.
Seeka originated in 1997 from the love story of two Israeli artists colliding in New York. In their home studio, while raising a young family, Nachshon Peleg and Stavit Allweis launched Seeka. To the age old craft of Judaica, Nachshon brought advanced technological solution while Stavit infused traditional symbols with playful strokes of color and liberal use of found objects.
The Mezuzah case is used to protect the Shema Yisreal Prayer scroll, and makes it possible to attach it to the doorpost. Traditionally, the Shema is handwritten on parchment by a scribe along with two additional paragraphs from the Torah. Placing the Mezuzah on the door is considered a Mitzvah, which is derived from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 "inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."
Seeka mezuzahs and dreidels portray the customs and beliefs of the Jewish faith. Several muzuzah designs feature Jewish wedding traditions, such as the chupa or a full Ketubah text. Others are visual reminders of Torah writings - of Noah, Moses, or the Tribes of Israel. Doves, Torah Scrolls, and Trees of Life are just a few of the other icons the artist use to create objects that are functional works of ritual art. Each mezuzah includes a photocopy along with an English translation, and mounting instructions.
