Release your inner artist to make heirloom Judaica for yourself or a friend. It’s especially gratifying to gift something you created, while also providing support for ORT students at Kfar Silver in Israel.

Choose to make the Apple and Honey tray, just in time for Rosh Hashanah, or the Challah board or both!

About the Artist: Gail Rosenbloom Kaplan

Gail Rosenbloom I am known as the artist in the blue smock. I bring artistic vision, sophisticated style and skills honed over decades into the studio and the community at large. I help clients to bring their ideas to life – as they create personalized pieces of art or come together to make large-scale mosaic and sand art installations. I have the experience and knowledge to empower others to explore and find their inner talent. Every piece is a guaranteed success! I have worked with school districts, public libraries, community and senior centers, hospitals, nonprofits, and more.
