Hug Your Menorah - Giveaway!



Chanukah Countdown

Last year, I got this great Menorah Hat for Chanukah.
I'm really the only kind of person who can truly get away with wearing this hat - it's great Rabbi-wear, if you ask me. I wore it on Sunday morning for Religious School and it got great response.

The other kind of person who can look good in this hat (which, I suppose, implies that I look good rather than just plain silly), is my daughter.

 
Actually, the Hebrew word "menorah" just means lamp. This 9-branched menorah is technically known as a chanukiyah, or Chanukah menorah. The term chanukiyah was coined by Eliezar Ben Yehuda or his wife (it's unclear), as they revived the Hebrew langugage as a modern tongue.

One of my favorite on-line Judaica stores is PopJudaica. You can, all year long, click on their button over there to the left, to buy great stuff from them. Go ahead, browse around. I can wait. Make sure you look at the Shlep Bag, the Wax-Off Spray, this awesome Menorah Wine Cork, and even this Poker Yarmulke. Great stuff, isn't it? It's a great year-round site. You can even follow them on Twitter.

Now that you're back, look at this cute stuffed Chanukiyah! You can't wear it on your head, but it sure is adorable and just the right thing for "lighting" with your kids. And they are so awesome - they're giving one away to a lucky reader of Ima on and off the Bima! (PopJudaica is giving the stuffed Chanukiyah, NOT the hat my Yael is wearing. Sorry. Didn't mean to confuse!)

How can you win this adorable stuffed Chanukiyah?

What a great shot! :) Wonder if Tracey is just running behind today w/ BSM or if there won't be one. Hmmm.

I wasn't going to enter because I'm trying to simplify and get rid of toys (even super cute ones like this), but then I remembered that a friend of mine has an almost 2-year-old and another on the way. She would love this. So I'll enter and have it sent her way if I win.

Can't wear it on your head, ay? You don't know my kids. If left alone with this thing for more than 5 minutes, they'd find a way. :-)

Great giveaway and I love Pop Judaica. I found out they were on Twitter through you and have been happily following ever since. :-)

Nice Menorah hat. I'd wear that around my office. I'm sure I'd make quite an impression with a suit and tie and menorah hat. ;-)
