In the collections are ultra rare vintage and antique religious material gathered over the past years due to involvement with different projects in different neighborhoods all over New York. As such, I've had premier access that no other collector has had.

The Synagogue was demolished immediately following, so these Antique and Vintage items cannot be found anywhere else.

This particular collection is a time capsule documenting another time: One of a kind hand-made bags with exquisite turn of the century embroidery made by the women in that community out of fabric and notions produced and sold in the area at the time, silk and embroidered Torah covers, textual and pictographic turn of the century Hebrew and Yiddish printing blocks, exceptionally rare embossed paper printing proofs, backed with period newspaper and four beyond ultra-rare Antique "New Years" greeting cards in Yiddish, Hebrew and even one in English! These cards are multi-page, scalloped, lace-cut and embossed bakelite or an early form of plastic. Absolutely jaw dropping artifact of early Lower East Side Jewish life just after the turn of the century.

Another collection includes exquisite 1940's and 1950's printed prayer cards containing one of a kind hand-painted images of Mary, Jesus, The Nativity, and more. Some of these prayer cards were printed in Germany and some in Italy and many are dated and bear the artist's copy-write. This collection also includes stunning vintage 1950's pictographic printed plates from the Scala Sancta of the Lourdes of America in the Bronx, NY-an historic religious monument erected after the original in Rome.
