Kaftor Vaferach Judaica: Company Profile
Workshop of holy ark curtains, Bimah covers, Torah mantle, chupppahs, talit sets and tefillin, kippahs gifts and souvenirs.
In 1929, the rabbi Yichiel Shimon Minsky left his town in Poland in order to achieve the dream of a lifetime: move to Israel. Upon his arrival to the Holy Land, he settled in Meah Shaarim neighborhood in Jerusalem and opened a shop and a small workshop for a living in Meah Shaarim street, 21.
He named them "Kaftor Vaferah" (button and flower) from the extract depicting the temple and menorah construction by the artist "Bezalel"; he then brought the artistic spirit to his craft and manufacturing judaica items. Over the years the name "Kaftor Vaferah" became synonymous of quality, beauty and creativity in the world of items for Jewish house.
Until today the shop is located in the same place as in the past, Meah Shaarim street 21. When the business evolved and expanded, a manufacture was established in the industrial park Makor Baruchm, Jerusalem. The team of the factory is professional and experienced and they work with the most enhanced sewing/embroider machines and laser of the world.
We are happy and proud to be the third generation in "Kaftor Vaferah" to serve you with devotion.
