Judaica Rugs and Jewish Carpets – To appreciate Jewish art it is important to understand the relationship between the art, the Jewish religion and the traditions of Judaism. For centuries the Jewish people were wanderers, often oppressed and forced to migrate and live within the civilizations of others. It is this cultural diversity that has inspired and influenced Jewish artisans to produce a vast variety of fine art. Judaica rugs are an example of a uniquely Jewish art form.
Regarding rug patterns, they often featured Jewish motifs, Old Testament biblical imagery, scenes of the Holy Land and sites of religious significance. They were frequently embellished with stars of David and menorahs.
