Last week, the Boston Chapter held a Keepers of the Gate event, held in the Pucker Gallery. It's owner, Bernie Pucker, told the group about the beginnings of the gallery which included its connection to the Safrai Gallery in Israel. Pucker and his wife Sue began to sell Israeli items on Newbury Street in Boston when Newbury Street was void of other commercial establishments and when no one in the neighborhood was in the market for items from Israel. Since then, the Pucker Gallery has become a landmark in the area and a buyer's destination for both Jewish and secular art.
Nancy Falchuk then spoke making connections between Pucker, his love of Israel and Hadassah. She also reminded everyone of their place in Hadassah and how what they do here makes a difference everywhere.
