Zadok Yehuda

Jewelry designer and gemologist, Zadok Yehuda, was born in a small village in northern Israel, the youngest of eleven brothers and sisters. After beginning his creative career as a photographer, a chance meeting with a goldsmith on a foreign trip ignited his own passion for jewelry. He started making jewelry just for fun, but then embarked on an artistic journey to learn unique ancient goldsmith techniques from traditional masters all over the world.

Frann Addison

Frann knew she wanted to be an artist from the early age, and was encouraged by her mother, a professional artist. While a graduate student at Cranbrook Academy of Art, she read an inspirational article on the need for Contemporary Judaica which launched her focus on creating Jewish Ritual Objects. Combining metalsmithing skills and artistic vision, Frann transforms components that have special meaning to clients or objects she scavenges, into unique Jewish Ritual Objects which acknowledge the past while offering new and unusual forms which satisfy the demands of ritual requirements.

Alex & Lorelei Gruss

Creativity meets craftsmanship at Lorelei and Alex’s Brooklyn studio. The artists create jewelry, magnificent synagogue interiors and ritual furniture. Their exquisite ceremonial objects have been exhibited in museums and featured in craft publications. “We give the gift of beauty, inspiring spirituality through our art.” The jewelry is handcrafted at their studio, allowing for resizing and custom work. Their fine Judaica objects, ritual furniture, and architectural installations are made upon commission.

Renee & Howard Vichinsky

The beauty of Jewish rituals, their spirit and tradition inspire Renee Vichinsky to focus her skills as a potter toward creating Judaic ceremonial objects and works of art. Renee draws inspiration from her memories as a child growing up in Israel. Its light, landscapes, cities, history and tradition all find expression in her exquisitely hand-crafted work. Working with her husband, Howard Vichinsky, Renee continues to use her creative skills to explore the Jewish tradition and beautify its rituals.

Robert & Carine Kleiman

Carine Kleiman joined her father, weaving artist and painter George Goldstein, working in his studio at the Artists’ Colony of Jerusalem starting in 1983. In 1985, Carine was given the additional opportunity to continue the work of Rabbi Roger Kahn who trained her in the art of weaving pure wool tallitot. Carine continued some of Rabbi Kahn’s designs and soon expanded to add new creations under the studio name Jerusalem Tallit.

Karla Gudeon

Once upon a time, Karla left a teaching career to pursue art full-time. She was determined to set an example for her young children when telling them they should grow up to pursue their passions. Upon buying a printing press, Karla developed her distinctive approach to the age-old technique of hand-colored engraving, building upon the watercolor work she honed at Parsons School of Design. Based in New York, Karla’s celebrated paintings are displayed in galleries and distinguished collections throughout the country and abroad.
