Shittim wood (Acacia)
Cut in the Sinai Desert

Photo of an actual Shittah (acacia tree) in Sinai desert
Note that Shittah/shittim is the singular and shittum is  the plural. 
 



Pieces of real shittum wood cut legally in the Sinai Desert of Israel.  Our source has been given permission to cut
some trees that grew in an old quarry that is being cleared.  These pieces are 3/4" x 3/4" x 5" -5.5" long.  To understand more of why it is important see Exodus, Chapter 25 in the Bible Old Testament.  We have had many requests over the years so we are very happy to be able to offer these to our customers, probably just at occasional intervals when we can get them. It can take years in between shipments. Certification is not available from the source (we asked but they said it was too much trouble for such a small number of blanks). WE HAVE NOW MADE OUR OWN CERTIFICATES FOR THIS WOOD. THEY ARE BASED ON OUR RECEIVING THEM FROM ISRAEL AND THE ASSURANCES THE SOURCE HAS GIVEN US. REQUEST THEM IN THE SHOPPING CART.
