Westport glassmaker Susan Lowenthal is among the artists exhibiting at the 22nd Annual Judaica Craft Show at Beth Am Shalom Synagogue in White Plains, N.Y. on Saturday, Nov. 14, 8-11 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 15, 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
The juried show features hundreds of unique works in all price ranges, created by nearly 50 artists from all across the country and Israel. “The show allows us to demonstrate our love and respect for the Israeli and American artists, and in so doing to support their morale and their means of livelihood,” says the synagogue’s spiritual leader, Rabbi Les Bronstein.
Featured are one-of-a-kind handcrafted Judaica ritual items and jewelry in ceramic, silver, fabric, wood, paper and other media. A sampling of the work can be seen at betamshalom.org/judaicacraftshow.
“For many Jews, the chance to own exquisite, original works of Judaic art is a way to celebrate their Jewish heritage,” says Phyllis Herz, the show’s chairperson. “This show, the only juried show of its caliber in the Northeast, demonstrates the vitality of the Jewish craft community.”
Admission to the Judaica Craft Show is $8 per person (Sunday re-entry free if paid Saturday night), or $7 with an invitation card or online voucher.
Bet Am Shalom Synagogue is located at 295 Soundview Avenue in White Plains. For additional information: (914) 946-8851, www.betamshalom.org/judaicacraftshow, where a discount voucher may be found.
