New at the HUC-JIR Judaica Gallery

Monday, May 3, 2010

These “Touching” mezuzot from the Studio of Israeli silversmith Sari Srulovitch are masterfully crafted in brass and brushed steel to create a design that is modern yet traditionally inspired. Srulovitch’s addition of indentations to the clean design represents the touch of thousands of hands that have reached up to kiss the mezuzah on the doorpost of Jewish homes for generations. These gorgeous mezuzot would be a thoughtful house-warming gift for all. $300 each plus shipping and handling. To purchase, please contact: 212-824-2218, museumnyc@huc.edu.
