    Membership in the American Guild of Judaic Art is a heartwarming experience. As its name implies, the Guild is a vibrant, living fortress of Jewish Arts. Members are not merely welcomed to the Guild, they are embraced. The force of unity inherent in its rare combination of talent, passion, intellect, and spirituality defines and exemplifies the purpose the Guild. What distinguishes this guild from others, however, is the precision, intensity, and pride in which its members convey their love of Judaism through their artistic works. I am honored to display my Judaic sculpture (some taking years to create) in the Gallery, and I am inspired by fellow artist- members by simply viewing their works and reading Hiddur. The Guild’s website, moreover, literally dotes on members’ artistic and creative achievements. I am in my sixties, and I intend to contribute to this truly wonderful organization as long as my hands can chip away at stone.”

    “Ten years ago, I received an email that changed my life. It began like this, “I saw your work on the American Guild of Judaic Art website and I wondered if you would be interested in creating a piece of artwork for our Synagogue?” That email and subsequent commissions from that first project, opened a new direction to my Judaic art career. I have the AGJA to thank for that…”
