Jerusalem Luminary of Hope, Israel/Palestine

The Jerusalem Luminary of Hope is Women's Peace Collection's signature piece, and we are so thrilled to have it back in stock.  Jerusalem is considered the "City of Peace" and the luminary is a symbol of peace that seeks to transcend borders of conflict. 

Created by Palestinian and Israeli women, the luminary candle is made of natural beeswax and embedded with olive leaves and everlasting flowers gathered in fields in Nazareth. It comes with an embroidered bag, sewn by Palestinian women in Bethlehem that contains a simple, replaceable tea light. When lit, the candle offers a beautiful glow reflecting an enduring vision for peace.  It will never burn out because the tea light is inside a hollow candle, so it reflects the light without actually burning the candle. 

This candle is lightly scented with a flower-like essence.
