I hope you can find something to use here for your Holiday Cards or Projects! Thanks so much for posting these! I especially love the Star of David made from vines and leavees.
At the center of your Hanukkah celebration, a menorah full of history will certainly make the story of Hanukkah shine bright, especially with a side of latkes and sufganiyot. These beautifully designed, almost always brass menorahs carry the weight and joy of Hanukkah celebrations of the generations before us, and their unique, Judaic details make each of them feel like a distinct treasure. Many finds in these online stores are handcrafted, truly one-of-a-kind works of art.
Hanukkah is the Jewish holiday which celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire, a Hellenistic state that had emerged after the division of Alexander the Great Empire in the second century BC. Back in the day, it has resembled a fully functioning and much appraised Israelite site of Jewish worship. Historically speaking, the Maccabean Revolt was an answer to the influence of the Hellenistic state on the Jewish way of life.
Shipping can be high unless you are ordering a larger number of cards but I only bought one. No cards went out. New Year's came and went!
These are some of the best Hanukkah decorations that I have ever seen. We celebrate Christmas and always told our kids that most of the decorations have nothing to do with Christmas but we are celebrating a birthday so why not decorate for this very special birthday the same way we would any other birthday. Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah, which starts on December 24 this year, is a relatively minor festival in the Jewish calendar. Around the same time Christmas started growing in popularity, synagogues started putting together Hanukkah festivals where leaders would tell the story behind the holiday, light a special menorah, and give sweets to the youngsters. New Jewish immigrants would buy presents for their kids during Hanukkah as a way to mark their success in becoming Americans.
