In February 2012, the Hechal Shlomo Museum in Jerusalem mounted an exhibition from the collection of Peter Ehrenthal, owner of the Moriah Galleries in New York.  The items are collected from many countries of the world, including England, Germany, the United States, Poland and Russia, and include posters, walking sticks, figurines and other objets d’art.
