JNF-USA’s Top 10 Chanukah Gifts With Meaning

(Courtesy of JNF) As Jewish communities around the world prepare to celebrate Chanukah and recall the heroic efforts of the Maccabees, Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA) has made it easier than ever to find the perfect Chanukah gift while supporting the land and people of Israel through their Online Mitzvah Marketplace: Shop Israeli Goods through the JNF store (jnf.org/store).

Earlier this year, just days after tourism in Israel ceased due to the pandemic, JNF-USA established its Online Mitzvah Marketplace to support Israeli small businesses in Israel’s Negev and Galilee who had traditionally relied on tourist traffic. Through this initiative, American consumers can directly support Israeli small businesses in addition to JNF-USA’s philanthropic investments in Israel.

With dozens of products and experiences to choose from, here are the top 10 Chanukah gift ideas that are sure to bring light into someone’s life this holiday season:

1. Odette Chocolate Boutique: Enjoy handmade chocolates and pralines from this specialized chocolate boutique.

2. Kalderon Art – Designer Glass: Handmade glass at its finest. Shop this beautiful collection of handmade glass straight from the Galilee. Lead designer Danny Kalderon, a graduate of Bezalel Academy and founder of its Glass Studies program, brings the art of glassmaking to artistic plates, bowls, dishes and more.
