Mordechai Hazan

 Mordechai Hazan is a rather unorthodox Orthodox Jew. At his art studio, the spirited Israeli native dances visitors around a porcelain palace of Noah's Ark Dreidels replete with 3-D giraffes and tigers, kaleidoscope-colored Seder Plates and Menorahs, with hand-sculpted roses and butterflies, and whimsical, handmade Mezuzahs. These are not your Bubbie's blue and white Tchotchkes!  Hazan is part of a renaissance in Jewish ceremonial art that has its roots in the '70's. "It's a fabulous phenomenon which is still thriving,"
