Neil Meixler

Neil Meixler, a retired dentist and Judaic artist, first made a yad (a Torah pointer) for his grandson. From that gift, Dr. Meixler became a noted designer of Judaica. Using wax and dental instruments, the completed wax yads are cast in sterling silver. He also runs a community service project, the "Yad Squad," where he helps young Hebrew school students and their parents create their own yads to be used when they are called to the Torah as a B'nei Mitzvah.
