The beautiful silver objects shown above are a pair of silver torah finials, formerly of the Mercaz Avraham Synagogue, Rehovot, Israel. The finials, which date back to circa 1870 and are estimated at $35,000 to $45,000, are just part of the bi-annual Judaica auction being held by Greenstein & Co.'s Auction House on January 10, 2011.

The auction takes place at the Radisson Martinique Hotel in Manhattan and will feature 200 rare and valuable objects including menorahs, Kiddush cups, silver torah ornaments, spice boxes, paintingsand much more. The auction is also open for phone bidding and purchase beforehand.

Greenstein recently launched the only Jewish Museum type of gallery in Cedarhurst, New York where collectors can buy select Judaica artifacts that are on display. Currently, the J. Greenstein & Co.
