“It has been a policy of mine for a long time to always bring a piece of Judaica back from my travels, ” said Alan Dershowitz. “I truly believe that the essence of Judaica is ‘from generation to generation’ – that is, that it should be passed down so that we never forget where we came from and so that the memories and treasures of others live on through Judaism and through Jewish history.”

J. Greenstein & Co. Auction House claims to be the only auction house in the United States that is “solely devoted to the sale of Jewish ritual objects.”
