The history of Bier Judaica starts with the founder Yitzhak Bier. In 1935, at the age of eight, Yitzhak Bier arrived in Jerusalem after immigrating from Germany. With talent and ambition, at the early age of 15, he started his studies in Art at the prestigious ‘Bezalel Academy of Design’ and completed the four-year course in only three! Soon after graduating at Bezalel, his Chanukah Menorah design won him the 1st prize in a design competition. This enabled him to purchase some of his first tools and machines, starting a small workshop in his basement. Four years later, with two new employees and a new-found customer base, he moved to the industrial center in Romema, Jerusalem. For Yitzhak Bier, being an employer did not mean just finding the best silversmiths and designers, it meant taking responsibility. In the 1960s, Yitzhak began to work with the local authorities to hire people with various disabilities which meant they were unable to find work elsewhere. He trained and cared for them, instilling hope and confidence in themselves and in their work. Some of them even went on to establish their own workshops or further their career elsewhere. In his illustrious career, Yitzhak has made some significant contributions to Israel and the well-known personalities within it. During the early years of the State, Yitzkak designed and produced gifts for the likes of David Ben-Gurion, Levi Eshkol, former Mayor of Jerusalem Teddy Kollek, the first Israeli Presidents and more! Pursing his passion of spreading meaningful creativity and design, Yitzhak designed the lighting lamps in the Great Synagogue in Haifa, signs for ‘Weizmann Institute of Science' in Rehovot, the design and preparation of the doors for the old Jerusalem Municipality building after the Six-Day War, the beautiful array of lamps which were held on the 14 pillars leading up to the Tomb of the Rambam in Tiberias and much more. With his vast achievements in design and industry, and his contribution to society, Yitzhak Bier was recognized by Jerusalem and its residents and received the prestigious ‘Worthy Citizen of Jerusalem' prize in 2019. For Yitzhak, Judaica is more than business, it's his way of giving back. Jerusalem is his source of inspiration, whether from her special architecture, the colorful day to day life and her varied cultures. Jewish holidays and traditions along with modern-classic art with a touch of Bauhaus style also inspired various aspects of his work. Our products are engrained with history, family, design, Judaism and Zionism. We invite you to carry our tradition forward into your homes and lives for generations to come. Our family staff are here to continue and the values of original design, high quality workmanship and service. All for our valued customers satisfaction.
