Chanukah Shopping Guide 2: Support A Progressive Jewish Community, and Gifts from Modern Tribe

We fell back an hour and enter the darkest time of the year, but some light lays ahead: the 8 fun nights of Chanukah with the menorah, family, and food.

While Hanookuh shouldn’t be a materialistic celebration—especially this year with supply shortages—it’s always fun to celebrate.

Here are some things you can do to mark the rededication of the temple, including supporting Nefesh of Los Angeles, my Jewish community, and supporting this creative project you’re enjoying at the moment itself.

Nefesh Silent Auction

Bid on unique, quirky, one-of-a-kind gifts and experiences that you could not find ANYWHERE ELSE but in the Nefesh community. This could be the perfect Chanukah gift for someone on your list. Plus, your gift in turn becomes a Chanukah gift to Nefesh to enable our community to continue into 2022.

A scintillating Shabbat with Nefesh,

Gifts include:

  • Two tickets to a taping of the last season of The Ellen Show
  • Amtlai Chanting Session with writer and director Joey Soloway and Lea Lion
  • Challah-Making class with author Joan Nathan
