Repairing/recycling the world

Any reader faithful to this blog (disappointed as s/he may be with recent lack of posts) will know that I am extremely interested in the reuse of objects to create Judaica. Despite the economic downturn here in the United States, we remain an extremely materialistic society, quick to dispose of things which may still be of use to someone else. For this reason, I cannot help but feature the art of these alchemists who turn one person's junk into a Judaic treasure!

The menorah above is the creation of French Canadian artist Jacques Rivard and is made from recycled glass.
