In Latin, it literally means Jewish matters. Most often referring to a variety of objects used for ritual purpose in Jewish life and/or Jewish ceremonial art. Including, but definitely not limited to:
A mezuzah (Hebrew: מְזוּזָה “doorpost”; plural: מְזוּזוֹת mezuzot) comprises a piece of parchment called a klaf contained in a decorative case and inscribed with specific Hebrew verses from the Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21).
Also known as a skullcap or yarmulke in Yiddish. It is a head covering/ small hat. You can find these in a great variety, ranging in style, color, and size.
A Chanukia or Chanukah menorah is a candelabra designated specifically for the festival of Chanukah. The Chanukah lamp contains room for nine candles — one for each night, plus the shammash or helper candle.
Kiddush ( Hebrew: קידוש ), literally, “sanctification,” is a blessing recited over wine or grape juice to sanctify the Shabbat and Jewish holidays.
A challah cover is a special cloth used to cover the two braided loaves (challah) set out on the table at the beginning of a Shabbat or Yom Tov meal. While its appearance lends a decorative and ceremonial aspect to the set table, its presence serves both a halakhic and symbolic function.
A chuppah (Hebrew: חוּפָּה, pl. חוּפּוֹת, chuppot, literally, “canopy” or “covering”), , is a canopy under which a Jewish couple stands during their wedding ceremony.
