THE HIDDUR MITZVAH PROJECT
Our mission is to ensure appreciation and a sense of artistic responsibility in children and communities alike.

In the spirit of making things beautiful, while doing good, Gary Rosenthal has designed this program to make it possible for anyone to create their own beautiful Judaica in his recognizable style. The complex process of creating fused glass is simplified so that anyone, of any age, can make their own. Using white craft glue, participants create mosaics of tumbled glass pieces on precut glass templates. Those mosaics are sent back to the Gary Rosenthal Collection studio where they are assembled and returned as a finished piece of Judaica. We’ve even developed the Preschool Paper Program for children too young to handle small pieces of glass.
All you need to make meaningful, heirloom quality Judaica at an unforgettable event
Our mission is to ensure appreciation and a sense of artistic responsibility in children and communities alike. In addition to the act of creating beautiful Judaica being a mitzvah in and of itself, the project can be used as a mitzvah in a variety of other specific ways. For example, items created with our Twinning Project can be donated to those in need or the project can be used as a fundraiser. The Gary Rosenthal Collection is committed to performing and helping others perform hiddur mitzvot through this program in a fun and enriching way.
Menorahs, Dreidels, and more. Glass created by the Chabad of New Jersey gets ready to be fused in the kiln.
We have had great success working with numerous Chabads, especially women’s auxiliaries, to create art-based community programming through the Hiddur Mitzvah project. Visit www.HiddurMitzvah.org to learn more about the project and to set up a program with your community.
