The Flagship Gallery
Our flagship gallery is just that: a display of aesthetically pleasing objects that are good for the soul, displayed in a manner guided by our great respect and affection for our artists and craftspeople, and the creativity, skill, and effort that they put in to every piece that they create. We adore and display Judaica as the art form is; the ritual Judaica is complemented by other goods for the soul: fair trade items, sustainable items, and other (typically handmade) unique items from around the globe: a retail incarnation of “world peace and understanding through shopping.”
We strictly curate every item; each piece, whether a simple candle or a piece of functional art, is either one-of-a-kind, hand crafted, or the best in its class, and each creation has a story that we hope to share with you. Here you will find one of many things rather than many of fewer items. Each individual piece is showcased with great care and thoughtfulness, and is easily accessible for careful and thoughtful viewing.
Available Services at the Gallery
We love to welcome visitors to our gallery. Feel free to browse the latest in Israeli and spiritual art, to rest your mind or feet, or to soothe your soul amidst the beauty and aura of the gallery. Our chairs are comfortable!
We pride ourselves in offering attentive service, and helping our clients find the perfect item. We will leave you alone to shop if that is what you wish, and we will also listen carefully to your needs and offer helpful advice if you prefer. Getting it right is more important than getting it done. And if we don't have what you are looking for, we will try to help you find it.
We offer a complete gift wrapping service, no matter how large or small a purchase: a simple yet joyous and colorful wrap using recycled materials.
Shipping is available for your purchases.
A Gallery for Creativity and Community
At The Aesthetic Sense: Goods for the Soul, we intend to build a community of friends who cherish goods for the soul. We invite collaboration and co-creation, inviting artists to design new creations and clients to suggest new ideas. We ask all of you to share your stories of the things which bring you joy and inspiration. We are truly a community of lovers, collectors, and users of the finest and most unique Judaica, Israeli, American and global crafts.
