The Yemini Silversmiths are a three generation family institution creating Judaica and jewelry and working out of their one hundred year old studio in a quaint Jerusalem neighborhood. Following in Yehia Yemini's footsteps, Yaacov, Boaz, and Margie practice the intricate art of designing and creating rare works of art from precious metals - gold and silver - by hand, fusing the renowned Yemenite tradition with the modern technology and artistic design that they studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
With an emphasis on quality and distinction, the Yemini reputation for excellence has made their unique work a preferred gift for dignitaries and heads of state. Various museums around the globe, including the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Jewish Museum in New York, and the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles, display Yemini pieces. Judaica aficionados world-wide collect and exhibit Yemini work in their private collections.
The Torah Ark and Bima embellishments of the new Park East Synagogue in Cleveland, Ohio were designed, produced, and installed by the Yeminis in September 2005. This venture reveals a new realm of creative endeavor currently being pursued in the Yemini studio.
