Made in Israel Arts & Crafts

C o I A
Co-op Of Israeli Artists

Shalom friends!!!
In light of the last few years when Israeli tourism knew UPS and DOWNS
from lots of tourists to absolutely NONE!!!

In 2002 after almost 2 years of crises during a military service in the north
I took half a day off and went to Safed where I set in an EMPTY street of the
artists colony with some friends who were all NOT busy and very sorry
for themselves ...for too long NO TOURISTS…

The idea came up there and then, to build up a CO OP of artists
who will be able to bring the art to the customers with a price
that will be similar to galleries in Israel + only shipping!!

I did most of the traveling for the group – of 15 artists!!!
We have been very successful with this project until 2004
when things got a lot better in Israel therefore we started
traveling 2-3 times a year only and so we do ever since!!

This "creative" solution brought arts and crafts of a large selection
to many congregations who support Israel as a mean of support that
actually gets "immediate" reward.

This is Rabbi Maimonides way of ULTIMATE Tzdakah - helping people
not by baying them a fish but by giving them a fishing stick!!

Artists could keep create in their studios while the art came to the end customer!!
As well as the art we brought with us the "ordinary" Israeli with some simple talks about Israel!!!

I would like to try and bring a little of Israel to the Diaspora.

SO this is our story, YOU can be part of this by hosting one of our shows
and create opportunities to expose the art and craft to more potential customers!!

The list of members is enclosed.

Morris Dahan\Masha Orlovitch\Asia Katz\Mical Meron\Ludmila
Feigen\Kibbutz Ein Tzurim\Yaacov Kaszmacher\Neta Jewelry\
Myra Mandel\Kibbutz Sde Boker\Shuki Freiman\Yair & Orna

Any connection you can use to help or any good idea that can bring us to any event
where we can offer our large variety of quality art and support about 15 families in Israel will be highly appreciated.
