The Jerusalem Stone Heritage Fulfilling Cup


The Jerusalem Heritage Fulfilling cup for the ritual blessing over the Sabbath wine tells the story of Jerusalem’s 3000-year legacy. The work has two tiers. On the upper level is the primary Kiddush cup, which is composed of three harps, symbolic of King David, founder of Jerusalem. On the lower tier are eight arches, which represent the eight gates of Jerusalem. Each gate is adorned with a smaller silver cup embossed with a gold medallion.  The medallions represent various conquerors of the ancient city over the past centuries. An interconnecting set of funnels forms a distribution system for the poured wine.

As the blessed Sabbath wine runs from the base of the primary cup to the smaller cups, the Jerusalem Heritage Cup becomes both a vessel for the holy ritual and a reminder of the blood that has been spilled in the conquests of Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Heritage Cup is not only a tribute to Jerusalem’s past but also to its future. Seven of the sections are reminders of its history, but the eighth arch is the gate of the future. It is through this gate of mercy that the Messiah will enter Jerusalem. Upon this cup is a menorah, the symbol of the Third Temple, and a dove with an olive branch, the symbol of the peace that will prevail during the Messianic Era. Each work is signed and numbered by the artist and is available in a limited edition.

1995, US patent. Made from Sterling Silver and Gold Plated.

About This Artist

Michael Kupietzky

Michael Kupietzky is a world renowned artist whose work can be seen in major Jewish museums and galleries in Europe, North America and Israel.

Michael was born in the United States in 1967 and immigrated to Israel with his family shortly before the 1973 Yom Kippur war. It soon became evident that he possessed manual dexterity and artistic talent.

In addition to yeshiva studies, Michael participated in a crafts-development program, in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem and at Bar Ilan University. He worked as an apprentice with stone masons Glaziers and silversmiths. Always keeping in mind the Bauhaus principle, "form follows function", Michael creates art that is up-to-date incorporating the latest technology and design innovations.

The vibrancy of his work and the striking simplicity of his designs place him on the cutting edge of contemporary design and the detailed craftsmanship on the traditional side of Jewish design. The shared quality in his work is the meaning behind the design. Through his background and thorough knowledge of classic Jewish texts and traditions, Michael is inspired to create works of art.

Michael also designs building interiors, Arks, custom made washing stations and memorials that embody the feeling and warmth of his personal Jewish experience. In his designs, Michael creates not only beautiful but functional and meaningful works of art.

Today Michael resides in the Judean Hills outside of Jerusalem, with his wife and children.
