Elevate your Shabbos and Yom Tov table with a salt cellar designed as a 1:60 scalereplica of the bronze altar in the Mishkan (the Tabernacle).

In an era where we do not offer animal sacrifices, our sages liken our Shabbos and holiday table to the altar itself and require salt when breaking bread2. This scale model and conversation piece is inspired by that parallel. 

Each piece is meticulously crafted from a single block of aerospace grade aluminum, then anodized a beautiful bronze. A felt pad is applied to the bottom to avoid scratching your table. The altar comes with a miniature spoon, hand carved from reclaimed oak. A reference card provides measurements and footnotes to the relevant sources. 

This sturdy salt cellar measures precisely 56 x 56 x 80mm (approximately 2.2 x 2.2 x 3.15 inches). 


1 According to R' Avraham Chaim Naeh's opinion that a טפח is 8cm. The Chazon Ish's opinion of 9.62cm per טפח would make this approximately 1.39:100 scale.
