The Atara Nevel

THE ATARA NEVEL played by Shoshanna Harrari

"The sound of the harp joins heaven and earth"

Two tone Israeli rosewood Atara with ros

The Atara Nevel made from Israeli Rosewood with Rose Carvings.

                                               Height 28" 72 cm.

 

In Hebrew, there are five words that express the concept of ‘Crown’.  Atara is considered to be the highest expression, the name for the divine crown that a person receives when they ascend to the heavenly world.  By virtue of the care, prayer, attention to detail, and love that we put into our work we chose to call this harp the Atara Nevel as a symbol of its exceptional level of quality...Temple quality...

During the time of the Temple ceremonies, the High Priest wore a special breastplate inlaid with twelve stones, each representing one of the tribes of Israel.  In this tradition, we offer semi-precious stones that are known to be associated with the Twelve Tribes inlaid in silver or gold.
