Hiddur Mitzvah Article in The New Standard

The New Standard, in central Ohio, just published a really nice front page article about Gary and the Hiddur Mitzvah Project that's worth a read:
“After the Holocaust some people were
afraid to show Judaica. My mission was
to create beautiful Jewish art. I wanted to
make beautiful bright color mezuzahs. I
wanted Judaic art objects that people could
display year round. I always tried to mix
function with the aesthetics of the form,”

Our Guarantee

We stand by our work and will repair or replace any damaged item for life.  Simply send in the broken piece with this form and we'll take care of it.  We  know that our items often become important heirlooms and we're glad to help keep them around for generations to come.  Here's a nice note we just got from someone whose mezuzah we were able to fix for her:

We have just received the mezzuzah that I sent to you to be repaired.  Thank you so much.  I can't wait to give it back to my son and daughter-in-law because it meant so much to them. 
With best wishes for your continued success.

Spring Work Preview

Gary just got back from the New York gift show where he introduced a number of new pieces, including a new style of bookend replacing the copper scroll style.  The studio, in the meantime, lost power for a few days due to the snow storm.  Now that we've been  up and running for a few days I've had time to get all the photos edited and sorted out to give you a taste of what we've been up to.  Based on the feedback from the show, some of these pieces may change between now and when they are put into production, and some may not even make it that far.  We've also got some more new work that will be ready in the next couple weeks in time for the Philly show.  that said, enjoy this small preview, and to see all of the new work you can view this facebook photo album.
