got out to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. We've got a lot
to tell you about so let's get straight to the good stuff!
on the Artists
---> Ildanach Studios - Copper Jewelry
THE ENTIRE ILDANACH STUDIOS COLLECTION
I met Curtis and Sheron Rowland at the Philadelphia Buyer's Market
of American Craft in February 2011. I strolled through their booth
and absolutely loved their pieces, but I couldn't find anything Jewish
looking. When I asked Curtis if they had any Judaica, he said, "We'll
make it for you!" The pieces that you see here are made exclusively
for Jewish Gift Place and cannot be found anywhere else! Reasonably
priced and beautiful, these pieces would make a special Bar or Bat Mitzvah
gift or Hanukkah gift.
---> Whitney Howard Designs - Blessing Ring and Story Necklaces
THE ENTIRE WHITNEY HOWARD COLLECTION
With a smile like Howard's (see
Howard Schwartz here), I couldn't resist the 'charms' of Whitney
Howard Designs. With every inspirational word you can think of, these
necklaces make awesome gifts! Howard told me that the Blessing Ring
necklaces are very popular as personalized Bar/Bat Mitzvah party favors.
You can have a blessing ring custom made with your own name or message,
and choose any other blessing rings to add to the necklace. Girls and
boys love this necklace! If you are interested, give us a call so we
can give you a quote for ordering in quantity.

ONLY THIS WEEK
- Avinu Malkanu
by Barbara Streisand - My sister-in-law, Elaine, told me to listen
to this version and it's really beautiful.
- Steve Jobs'
2005 Stanford Commencement Address - "Your time is limited,
so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by
dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything
else is secondary."
Kippur Skit by Ben Stiller on Saturday Night Live - Ben
Stiller, who is half Jewish (his dad is Jewish and his mom is Irish
Catholic) has a Jewish food hallucination after fasting all day (led
by Willy Wonka) in this very funny opening skit.

I hope your holidays were great. We belong to a synagogue with a Cantor
with a really beautiful tenor voice, which we got to enjoy the last
2 weeks accompanied by a choir from Israel. We got away for a 2-night
camping trip last weekend to Belleplain State Forest in NJ, which has
great bike paths, and this past weekend, we visited Planting Fields
Arboretum, a 400-acre estate in Old Brookville, NY. It's amazing what
old money can buy - mansions and grounds beyond belief!
Have a great week and enjoy your Sukkot holiday!
