This paper looks at the place of judaic metalsmithing in the light of the question “is there jewish art.” The talk encompasses the author’s view of jewish art and judaica, a history of the origins of judaica, early judaica in the United States and post WWII judaica. The later is discussed through review of contemporary judaic metalsmiths in the United States and overseas.
