About Menorah Galleries
Menorah Galleries is a leading gallery in the field of Jewish art and antique Judaica, holding a large and varied collection of antique Jewish ritual objects and art for sale. The gallery’s collection includes high quality antique Judaica from a range of periods, styles and geographical origins, as well as works by famous artists and antique craftsmen from various Jewish communities around the globe, spanning more than 300 years of Jewish history.
The Gallery was founded by Avi Girshengorn and Meir Appel. Raised in Israel and Williamsburg respectively, their families collected and were immersed with the world of Judaica, leading both to develop great love for and first-hand knowledge of Jewish art and antiques.
We believe that each collector should have a deep personal connection to the objects he purchases. By their nature, Jewish ritual objects and art have a long history, with each has its own story to tell; to their collectors, such items provide intellectual knowledge of Jewish culture and a deep connection to its past. As the galleries' owners, we hope to nurture such relationship between collector and object. For this reason, each object that Menorah Galleries acquire is personally selected for its intrinsic beauty, aesthetic value, and historical importance. Like our clients, we too become collectors each time we acquire an object. We are pleased to bring this personal experience and passion to our work at Menorah Galleries.
The gallery’s main showroom is located on Madison Avenue, New York, an exclusive area in the heart of Manhattan, steps from the Jewish Museum.
The gallery is open for business year-round, and we invite customers from around the world to visit us. While the focus of the gallery revolves around the purchase and sale of quality antique Judaic objects and other Jewish art, we also offer a range of other services for the convenience of our customers, such as antique restoration and product hire.
