Brazilian enamel Judaica pin of Jewish Community of Sao Paulo 1920s-1930s
17770087
Brazil: enamel pin of the Jewish Community of Sao Paulo ("Círculo Israelita de São Paulo"), circa. 1920s-1930s; not maker-marked; size: 11mm x 40mm; weight: 0.85g. Design is of blue and white enamel with emblem at center and stylized metal lettering all around, "Circulo Israelita De S. Paulo". The "Circulo Israelita" was founded by young Jews in 1926 and existed as an independent Jewish organization until 1971, when it merged with its Maccabi branch and is now known by that latter name. A relatively rare item as although the Brazilian Jewish community numbers almost 100,000 members, very little of its history is documented.

Germany bronze Judaica medallion of Board of Jewish Community Hannover 1870-80s
17370088
Germany > Hanover: uniface medallion of the Board of Jewish Community in Hannover, bronze; circa. 1870-1880s; size: 44.5mm; weight: 19.1g. The design depicts the coat of arms of the city of Hanover with lions on either side, with the community's name written around: "Vorstand der Israelitischen Gemeinde zu Hannover". This medallion was probably affixed to an official object belonging to the Board; its estimated date relates to a time of growth in the community: after the emancipation of the Jews of Hanover (1866), the establishment of the large Synagogue (1865-1870) and a rise in the Jewish population, to 3500 (1880).

Hebrew 'Tarbut Ivrit - Hungary' maker-marked artistic Judaica pin 1910s
23370090
Hungary: "Hebrew Culture - Hungary" enamel and metal pin, circa. 1910s; designed by Y. Sh.; size: 32.25 x 31.75mm; weight: 8.05g. Oval shaped badge in blue & white enamel, with Hebrew words "Hebrew" & "Culture" on white [Ten Commandment] Tablet devices & silver rays emitting forth & "Hungaria" in exergue; designer's Hebrew initials at left. Little information exists, but "Tarbut Ivrit" as a teaching method was one of total immersion in Hebrew & connection to a cultural icon (period Zionist youth movements) where Hebrew instruction imbued with romantic aura & sense of moral mission, adapting language of Bible for modern life. Here, pin probably connected to activities of Eliyahu Blank, József Patai & Dr. Yehuda Spiegel (perhaps the designer's initials are his).
