By JOANNE PALMER

If Alexander Calder could have a piece of art at JFK airport, so could he, Mitchell Egenberg of Montebello (in the eruv of Monsey, Mr. Egenberg made clear), Mr. Egenberg thought.

On December 26, Mr. Egenberg, a jeweler who prides himself on creating pieces of art, will donate a yad — the pointer Torah-readers use as they read from a Torah scroll — to the Jewish chapel at the huge airport in Queens.
