About Netafim55; The ancient art and artistry of silver, part of Jewish tradition since biblical times, lives on today in the singular works of Netafim 55, Israel’s most renowned and respected manufacturer of Judaica. Born in 1914 to a family of silversmiths, founder Shimon Nataf, of blessed memory, learned his craft as a child. As time passed, he became recognized as one of the foremost silver artisans in Tunisia, capturing the impeccable art of generations of Nataf family silver artisans among them official silversmiths to the Royal court. Immigrating to Israel with his family in 1947, Shimon Nataf offer his sons to follow in their father’s footsteps, teaching them the exacting and demanding craft of candelabra, kiddush cups, spice boxes, mezuzot, menorahs and Torah plates. Today, Netafim 55 specializes in a unique selection of hand worked items, some preserving the techniques and forms of ancient treasures and others reflecting modern influences. Many are one-of-a-kind treasures made for synagogues and private collectors around the world.
