Stained Windows get New Life

This post is a long time coming - I've been meaning to share this great story with you for a while but it always seemed to be on the bottom of my to-do list until now.  A few months ago we were contacted by Agudas Achim in Austin Texas.  Their synagogue was undergoing a huge renovation but unfortunately the demolition included some classic stained glass windows.  As a way to preserve the windows and incorporate them into the new building, the congregation commissioned us to create mezuzot for every doorway in the new building, using the glass from the old windows.  The results were truly unique and special - you can see them below being hung as part of a special mezuzah hanging day!
