Sponsored by Hub International

The presentation will examine Judaic objects made from silver, metals, wood, ceramic, fabric, glass, vellum and paper owned by Ashkenazi Jews fleeing Russia, Eastern and Central Europe; And we will see religious pieces from Israel, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Palestine and Damascus brought to America by Sephardic Jews in the last third of the 20th century. Additional objects were assembled by second and third generation American Jews who acquire objects at auction and dealers; The search is often for pieces made in the region where their families originated.

How does the appraiser establish the value for objects imbued with layers of emotional, historical and geographic significance? This will be considered as will condition, quality, craftsmanship, provenance and rarity to understand components of the Judaica market.

In the course of examining traditional pieces we will see contemporary Judaica made by silversmiths who have left behind the prototypes of 19th century design to create a new visual language for sacred objects.
