Jewelry Collection Inspired by Ancient Jewish Teachings

    A. Litwin Releases Jewelry Collection Inspired by Ancient Jewish Teachings
      A. Litwin presents a new jewelry collection inspired by ancient Jewish teaching. Intertwining the beauty of the shapes and meanings of Hebrew letters, jewelry designer Andrew Akim Litwin creates enduring styles. The centerpiece of the collection, the Lamed Bet design, brings together the last and first letters of the Torah, the Hebrew bible – a word that means heart.

      The inspiration for this design occurred on Rosh Hashanah where a Rabbi pointed out this teaching from a commentary on the Torah.

        Other pieces similarly have symbolic meanings, all based on the meanings and numeric values of Hebrew letters.

        A new company, A. Litwin has traditional roots.  Andy’s family has been in the jewelry business since at least the late eighteen hundreds.  His great grandfather Akim Litwin made jewelry for the Russian czar and nobility.

        Ever since, his family has been in the jewelry business.  They began Litwin Jewelers as immigrants to America in 1911.  The company thrived and Andy can remember, as a young child, watching with fascination the jewelers working at their benches making the timeless, classic designs that would become a hallmark feature of the Litwin company and style.

        While Andy pursued a career in medicine–he has an MD and MPH degree, he has returned to his family roots to become a jewelry designer.  The creative inspirations for his jewelry first came to him while studying the infinite meanings of Hebrew letters. There is nothing haphazard or arbitrary about his designs. They all are based on some underlying Jewish teaching.  

        Andy pairs each of the enduring styles in his jewelry collection with thought-provoking information about the ancient teachings, in some cases thousands of years old, which inspire his work.

        For more information about the collection and the teachings upon which it is based, please visit All designs can be customized in different metals, and with diamonds or other stones.
