Antiques & Arts Weekly and the New York Times feature our dealer, Menorah Galleries [Gallery 59 | 434.249.4696] as the successor to the premier Judaica store in the city. See new inventory and contact Menorah Galleries here.
Excerpt from Eve M. Kahn’s New York Times article “Showcasing Jewish Antiques and Their Stories” below.
Moriah Galleries, one of Manhattan’s oldest purveyors of Jewish ritual objects and art, has closed after six decades and sold its inventory to one of the newest Judaica stores in New York, Menorah Galleries. In three basement rooms at the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center on Second Avenue, Menorah Galleries has set up Jewish antiques — many of them salvaged from destroyed synagogues and decimated communities — that are rarely the subject of exhibitions and sales.
What quickly became apparent during a preview this month is that each item has “a fantastic story” associated with it, as Menorah’s owners, Avi Girshengorn and Mier Appel, often said before explaining the international sources of their material.
