Snow globes can be found all over the world, even in areas which rarely get snow! The point is not always to portray actual snow falling (although it usually is in Christmas ornaments and similar scenes) but rather to get the globe effect and to have fun watching the particles shake and settle.
Snow Globes from Israel
In order to make it clear that the ‘snow' is for fun rather than to be taken as literal snow, our snow globes don't portray scenes or buildings. Many do, so that it appears that it is snowing on the landmark of choice, but that would look out of place with snow globes from Israel! Rather, our globes make it fun to learn about cultural aspects of Israel, as well as making links to areas that do have snow.
Israel Water Globes with “Fiddler on the Roof”
“Fiddler on the Roof” is a famous musical about a community of Russian Jews. The musical is a window into the culture of Russian Jews at the time. Since it is set in Russia, it also makes more sense as a snow globe than locations in Israel would. You can use our “Fiddler on the Roof” water globe to commemorate a trip to Israel or a trip to see a performance of the show- or as a gift for any fan.
Fiddler Snow Globe
Although this looks a little similar to our “Fiddler on the Roof” globe, this does not celebrate a specific musical but rather the importance of music in Hebrew culture. Israel's contemporary music scene has drawn inspiration from all over the world, since the country was formed of Jews who had been living in many different areas, but it also has a strong vein of traditional music that includes a lot of stringed instruments. Our snow globe portrays a traditionally dressed man playing a fiddle, likely indulging in some of his homeland's folk music.
“Simchat Torah” Water Globe
The Torah is the religious text for Judaism. They have annual public readings of selections from the text, and this event is called the “Simchat Torah”. It is an important religious and cultural observance for Jews around the world, and all the more so for those who live in Israel. Now you can bring some of this important occasion into your home with our water globe of a man holding a Torah scroll.
