Stories of Hope
Hope Sunflowers, an exclusive collection by Zaltas Fine Jewelers, was conceived by owner Kathy Grosz-Zaltas, after learning her parents’ painful Holocaust stories. Through sessions sponsored by HHREC (Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center) Safekeeping Stories workshop, led with inspiration by Jill Sarkozi, she was able to dig deep into her family’s history and learned to craft their stories of darkness and courage. This special journey, although emotionally difficult, left her with deep feelings of dignity, honor and pride.
“I tell their stories as a legacy for my children and grandchildren and for everyone's future generations. In many ways, the telling has been healing and has afforded me the opportunity to teach the lessons of the Holocaust to many generations, so that they may live in light rather than darkness.
The sunflower itself inspires me. They grow and follow the light. From its dark center, seeds emerge, numerous and nourishing, and create NEW sunflowers in the spring.
It is my hope that, like the seeds of the Sunflower, the stories of the Holocaust will spread all over the world, healing, teaching the importance of acceptance, understanding and the value of human rights. These I call the Seeds of Hope!”
A Hope Sunflower Makes a Lasting and Special Gift
One of the reasons the Hope Sunflower collection is so popular is due to how universally appealing it is. The size is just right for the woman who wants to add a touch of subtle elegance to her wardrobe. We have heard many of our customers say they wear theirs each and every day, as does Zaltas Fine Jewelers co-owner Kathy Zaltas!
However, they are also the perfect price point and petite size to give for birthdays, bat mitzvahs, or to the woman who simply loves sunflowers.
Most importantly to the Zaltas family, 20% of all proceeds of this collection are donated to HHREC.
We keep many of our Hope Sunflowers pieces in stock, others may take 1 - 4 weeks for delivery. Kindly contact Zaltas to let us know if your order needs to be expedited.
