The term Judaica is a blanket name for any product of the Jewish religion, and silver Judaica is the term for the physical products for uses in direct Judaism religious practices and ceremonial events. Although these many specific religious items are almost always made of pure silver, they are at times also silver plated or made of gold and precious jewels.

Silver Judaica has a historical reaching as far back as the very first synagogues of Judaism and are spoken of in the Old Testament.

Silver Judaica is a hand crafted work of art and beauty along with a specific Judaic religious association. They are made by the gentle yet knowledgeable expertized artists from almost every continent. The specific techniques and requirements of Silver Judaica arts are passed on down throughout many family generations. Although the art its self is highly religious, the beauty of the artistic objects continue to be in high demand outside of the Judaic religion and ceremonial events. Many of these items are so precious, that Christie's and Sotheby auctions have their very own 'Silver Judaica' catalogs for those who collect older and rare Silver Judaica objects. Collectors may or may not be Judaic followers of the Jewish religion, many whom collect are in it for the exquisite rarity and beauty of the objects.

Elegant and artistic they make excellent gifts and can be passed on through the generations as heirlooms also.
