Just received the silver beaded healing bracelet today and been it's beautiful! All of the pieces I have ordered from you are so lovely. You have a real talent and I'm excited to give the bracelet to my sister in a couple of weeks..
Hello! I received the new chain today and it feels 100 times stronger than the previous chain. In light of the recent tragedy in Pittsburgh and the rise of anti-Semitism in our country, I want to rock my Jewish pride more than ever. My grandparents fought Nazis in WWII, my parents rebelled against the government-sponsored anti-Semitism in their home country of Ukraine and were granted political asylum in 1992, and I will absolutely continue to demonstrate my faith to ensure that history does not dare repeat itself in a country my grandparents and parents now consider home! Once again, I'd like to thank you for your continuous dedication to excellent customer service. I hope your business flourishes as more and more young people are inspired by the need to protect their heritage from discrimination and become politically involved in doing so.
Best, *Stella Naulo*
"I love everything I bought from Alef Bet. Very nice design and great quality jewelry. I would definitely recommend Alef Bet to all my friends. Thanks a lot for very efficient communication."
"I purchased the "Shema Bracelet with Beads" for myself and for friends. It is a great addition to any wrist already filled with bracelets! Don't let the small size fool you. When you slide on the bracelet, you can see that it's packed with SHINE, TREND and that special hint of Judaism you expect only from this designer. Customer service is terrific, fast and efficient."

"I have had a superb one-on-one purchasing experience with Alef Bet which has been informative, prompt, and generous by extending a discount for the purchase of several Hamsa necklaces. I wear mine always and get compliments all the time. It is beautiful with the delicate gold chain and paves diamonds. I have decided to give them as gifts as well and will be ordering in the future. Thanks for all your help!"
"I love all the things on your website and wear them with great pride (and amazing style!!) 😊"
"Just wanted to thank you so much for my beautiful Hamsa bracelet! I have been drooling over it for months (saw it on a Facebook post) and had been saving up to get it myself. I saw it with my cousin this summer and showed my mom. Did not expect her to get it for me, but was so surprised and HAPPY! I really love everything about it and am super excited to wear it! Everyday!"
"Thanks so much for your part in the surprise!"
"Now I'll be saving up for a long chain (I love the ones with the stones in it every few inches...) Your pieces are so beautiful and unique. I have always loved your things!"
"That was a great article about you and Alyssa and your business. Congrats!"
"Just wanted to thank you for the great necklace and tree of life pendant. I'm not a big jewelry type of person so the jewelry I wear is important to me. My mother passed away recently, and I got this to remember her by. It's great! You answered all of my questions, and got back to me within an hour of all of my emails. This is very impressive. I will recommend you to family and friends. Again, Thanks!"
"Thank you again for producing such lovely jewelry. I am so excited, and relieved, that I finally found what I have been looking for. After surviving hurricane sandy without a scratch I thought a bendel bracelet was a timely and incredibly relevent purchase. I will definitely direct my friends and family to your site. Best of luck with your business!!"
"Just got the order. Man, I love your stuff. So beautiful. So far, you are the only place from which I have ordered all the bat mitzvah presents for my daughter's friends. Wish I had known you for my other, older, daughters. Keep up the good work."
"Thank you so much - the little girl who's bat mitzvah it is will love it! We'll mention you to our Jewish friends - I'm sure they'd be interested in your jewelry."
"I wanted to thank you for the beautiful rings. I got them in the mail a couple of weeks ago and absolutely fell in the love with them. They are stunning. They fit perfectly! Thank you."
"Hi there, last week we received the bat mitzvah bracelet (black band w/silver letter sliding charms) that we ordered. Well, it totally exceeded my expectations! How beautiful! The picture online doesn’t do it justice. I know my daughter’s friend will LOVE it! We will be ordering these for any future bat mitzvah gifts (they are at that age, now…so I expect plenty!!! Thank you for this great product! My daughter and I would love your tote! THANK YOU!"

"I bought a necklace today at Bloomingdale's and met Fran. She is lovely and your jewelry is spectacular. Thanks for being a great designer"
"I cannot say enough about my dealings with this merchant. I have placed NUMEROUS orders with this company and my expectations have been exceeded each time. The personal attention and care given to me, as a customer, were TOP NOTCH. I would HIGHLY suggest this company for use by anyone in the market for this type of merchandise. The inventory is extensive, fairly priced, and truly beautiful!! KUDOS to this merchant for doing such an outstanding job, on every front, to make shopping with them an absolute pleasure!!!!!!"
"This was the first time I bought from alefbet.com. I was extremely pleased with their service, and when the gift arrived each piece was in its own little gift pouch. I would recommend them to all my friends."
"This vendor epitomizes what it means to be a super merchant. Their selection, prices and customer support are superb. You can't ask for better response time or quality of merchandise. I can't recommend them highly enough."
"They provided the fastest fulfillment and delivery. Awesome, as we couldn't wait to get our beautiful necklace. Plus, they are helping me to modify the jewelry to fit my 10 year old daughter. They have been very organized and professional with my request. They are more than attentive to what was unexpected in my purchase. Excellent customer service! Friendly, helpful staff. I will make sure to pass along their website to anyone who wants great Judiac jewelry. Beautiful stuff, too. Original designs at great prices."
"When a bracelet came with the wrong charm and was a bit small, I called their 800 number and customer service immediately shipped a new bracelet and included a 60 cent stamp to return the other. A quirk on the website had caused the wrong charm to be selected and customer service immediately had the website changed. Amazing service!"
"Having dealt with alefbet in the past, I know they maintain a high level of excellence in their product and their service."
"I love the personal service i get from Alef Bet. I have been an on-line customer there for years."

"I just wanted to say thank you again for the beautiful free ring you sent to me... I am in the early stages of my 2nd pregnancy, and on the day when I received your beautiful ring in the mail, I had just returned from my doctor's office where, even though it should have been too early to hear it, the doctor tried and successfully found my new baby's little heartbeat :) So when I came home and found your "luck" ring in the mailbox, I couldn't help but smile and say thank you!"
"Thanx so much we are looking forward our order . You prices are really fair and I give you credit for keeping the line fresh A lot of Judaica we see at the shows starts to run together and much of it looks unchanged since the eighties! I'm sorry we missed seeing you at the NYGF booth but we spoke at length to your mom and it was nice seeing the work again."
- David Decca

And the triple hamsa neck. And the pearl and ruby hamsa bracelet. All on a Thursday night! Thanks again for creating wonderful pieces, at great prices. Shabbat Shalom Happy Mother’s Day!"

"One of Artistic Judaic Promotions' featured artists is Paula Brooks, a jewelry designer who also has her own website, Alefbet.com, which sells her own Judaic jewelry, including the now ubiquitous necklaces and bracelets made with Hebrew letter beads. "Over the years Terry and I have gotten to be such good friends, every time we meet at a trade show we have dinner together," says Brooks. "Our daughters have become good friends, too."
"Like Heller, Brooks shares her business with her daughter. Alissa Brooks Haroush joined Alefbet.com when she was a senior at UCLA. "Mom got so busy filling orders, she would call and ask me to come over and help," recalls Haroush, who at 34 is the mother of two and lives 10 minutes away from Brooks in Chats worth, California. "I found it fun and exciting, and, because I was in Judaic studies, it fit right in."
"Today, Haroush helps design the jewelry in addition to sharing the business side of the company. "Since Alissa was a little girl, we've done crafty projects together and we're a good pair because she has a different eye from mine," says Brooks. "I have to tell you, though, that of my three daughters, Alissa was the most headstrong when she was a teenager. I never would have imagined that we would be such good pair because she has a different eye from mine," says Brooks. "I have to tell you, though, that of my three daughters, Alissa was the most headstrong when she was a teenager. I never would have imagined that we would be such good friends as adults." Haroush echoes the sentiment. "When I was a teenager, I couldn't stand to be with my mom for five minutes," she says. "But now when we travel, we're together 24 hours a day and I love it. I've learned what a nice person she is and how enjoyable she is to be with."
"Both mother and daughter appreciate another advantage of an online, as opposed to a bricks-and-mortar, business. "Alissa has raised her kids right here in our home office," says Brooks. "How many women are lucky enough to see their grandchildren every day?" "When customers call and they hear kids in the background, they accept it," adds Haroush. "They get a kick out of our having such a strong family unit."

Even though I am far from them geographically, on the other side of the country, shopping with Alef Bet feels like I'm visiting a favorite store around the corner.

It's a beautiful way of showing I care."
