Part of the Blown Glass Jar Series (Salt) - clear highlighted with bold green stripes.
Salt, Melach, has many mystical and ritual purposes in the Jewish tradition. From spreading on the Temple sacrifices representing the mineral world, to spreading on our meat to ensure kashrut, there are many shamanistic and metaphoric powers of salt.
Salt, מלח, has the same letters as Bread, לחם, and they have deep mystical synergy. Bread represents Chesed, unbounded Loving kindness, and Salt represents Ge’vurah, focused strength and boundary, so by combining these two Se’firot, the force of focused love and bounded kindness, we can fill our world with Tikkun Olam.
Furthermore, the symbol of a “vessel” is likened to our bodies as a vessel for a holy soul. This glass vessel has its own beauty and possibilities, just like you.
Salt is that spice of life that brings out the good flavor and digestibility of food. Orsa Salt comes from an ancient inland sea bed in Utah. This salt has 72+ natural trace minerals giving it a unique pink color, sweet flavor, and many health benefits. This Salt Jar is a blessing of ge’vurah, and may you be the Salt of the Earth bringing flavorful zeal into all you do.
