Ongoing Programs 

Moshe Monzon Gallery
Virtual Israeli Shuk Experience

Orders accepted through December 31, 2020

Many things have changed, but the power of tradition and community has not diminished. By popular demand, Moshe & Goldie came regularly to the J to offer beautiful Judaica (jewelry, prints, crafts, and more) at affordable prices. Due to the pandemic, they are not able to make their annual trip in time for the holidays. So we are bringing their gallery to your home via the Virtual J.

Special Offer: As a token of appreciation, Monzon Gallery will include a small pouch as a gift (Value $10) with purchases over $100.

Note:  10% of each sale will be made as a donation to the J. Please refer to "Pozez" when you place your order.
