NCJW Donor Wall

Every now and again we are commissioned to create donor walls for organizations who want something a bit different than the standard brass plaques.  The National Council of Jewish Women just ordered this one that has a fun, funky design.  The bottom plaque is removable and can be replaced each year with a new one to reflect that year's donors.

This impressive wall hanging measures 31" tall.

After Katrina

We recently created a large custom menorah for the New Orleans community.  On the 5th anniversary of Katrina there was held a mass Havdalah service at the New Orleans JCC to make the passing of those five years and the healing that has taken place since.  The menorah we made was featured as part of that service as you can see in this great photo:

Stuart's 100th Mezuzah

Wow, it's been a while since I posted!  Things have been pretty crazy around here lately.  What with the New York Gift Show, getting the new catalog ready and off to the printer's, and dealing with some renovations to the building, I haven't had time to update the blog lately.  Once we get some new flooring in here I will try to get some before and after shots of the building so you can see what we've been up to, but for now I have something else to talk about.

A little while back I wrote about Stuart, the mezuzah collector, who paid us a visit and purchased his hundredth mezuzah to complete his collection.  Well, he got the final piece framed and added to the collection and sent us a couple pictures to share:
