Adath Israel’s Coleman Family Judaica Shop

For the sisterhood ladies, it’s the mitzvah of making a Jewish home that drives their passion for Adath Israel’s Coleman Family Judaica Shop.

What makes Adath Israel’s Judaica shop special is that it is not a gift shop – it’s a Judaica shop. It only sells Judaica, nothing else, and it also serves the entire community. With over 500 items for sale at any given time, there is something for everyone. Most of the items are from Israel or made in Israel. 

The hope is that the Judaica shop will help enhance mitzvot (hiddur mitzvot) by carrying beautiful ritual items. Making use of ritual objects, no matter how simple or grand, whether new or heirloom, also signals to your family and friends that Judaism and its rituals are an important part of your home life. The Judaica Shop is sure to have beautiful items for your own use and to give to others so that they too, can carry on our traditions. The traditions continue with today's artists reshaping ceremonial objects using new and innovative materials. Most contemporary Judaica artists may be found in our shop or by special order.

Drawing in dreidel collectors from all over the city, the shop has the largest selection around. All of the profits go directly to Adath Israel’s sisterhood, which helps support the religious school, youth department, and many other programs at Adath Israel.
