I really like all of my products in the way that one can really like inanimate things. Ok, actually I adore the products I carry, and wouldn’t dream of selling anything that I didn’t want to own myself. And, although it’s not fair, I have to admit to loving–the way you just don’t just like but love inanimate objects like your car or your backpack or the trusty canopy you set up at a festival–the Judaica I have made in Haiti. No doubt a big part of it is the process by which it’s made, with lots of context, and questions, and cross-cultural sharing. The other part of it is that if I were in the market for a gift for a Jewish wedding, or a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, my recycled metal Judaica from Haiti is exactly the kind of product I’d give. (Yes. I am probably biased.)
With that intro paragraph out of the way, I was just packing up a wholesale order of my amazing recycled Judaica and realized that I hadn’t quite shown it off. I’ll fix that right now.

Same thought, but in English:
