For the Eighth Day of Hanukkah
Anyone who’s ever taken a stroll through down-town Jerusalem has undoubtedly seen them — the stores selling tchotchkes to unsuspecting, or at least undiscerning, tourists visiting the Holy City. One can easily get the impression that Ben-Yehuda Street is the world’s epicenter of Religious Paraphernalia in Bad Taste.
Sure, Jerusalem isn’t the only place where these items can be purchased, but if you live outside the Jewish state and not in close proximity to Manhattan, le Marais or Golders Green, you might not find a way to stock up on Jewish kitsch so easily.
Luckily, if you’re one of these desperate diaspora shoppers, Heeb Magazine has found a solution for you. The other day when I was browsing that excellent publication, I came across an item about a site specializing in infelicitous Judaica.
This site, called Judaican’t, can be accessed here. Now you can browse for those truly unforgettable Hanukkah gifts from wherever you happen to live.
