Gary Rosenthal has been sculpting in welded metals for over 20 years. He is self-taught and his popular style is unique and reflects a rare sensitivity to both his materials and his subject.
Rosenthal sculpture has been commissioned by the International Special Olympics Committee for the 1978 World Games, the Miss Dance America Trophy and the annual membership awards for B’nai Brith International. Mr. Rosenthal’s art has also been used as presentations for individuals as varied as Presidents Carter and Clinton, John Travolta and musician Issac Stern.

This challah tray is a chic modern classic.


Emily Rosenfeld:

This Jewish charity box is made of linden wood and has a pewter detail on the top and front. The pomegranate symbolizes abundance and sustenance while the tree of life connects to all mankind. It is a contemporary interpretation of the tradition, with a slot on top for change and a hinged top for access. Perfect for your mom’s vanity or next to her Shabbat candleticks, as it is custom to give charity before a jewish woman lights candles on Friday night.
