Welcome to the Chanukah Gift Guide!

Editor’s note: This is the time of year when we share ideas for gifts large and small for family members, friends, colleagues, employees, children, grandchildren and service providers. We hope you find the pages ahead useful.

As always, we are happy to highlight gifts from advertisers who are well known for their best-loved standards, most useful or trendy gifts. While material items are certainly not the most important part of the Chanukah season, we hope that the gifts identified here will serve as great ideas for birthdays, anniversaries and host presents the whole year through.


This Chanukah, give a meaningful gift: Join the Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE) in shaping brighter futures for Jewish students.

At CIJE, we believe that every Jewish day school graduate should not just navigate the future but shape it. Since 2001, CIJE has worked to revolutionize Jewish students’ educational journeys in the United States through innovation and hands-on STEAM education. When you give the gift of STEAM education this Chanukah, you are bringing quality, hands-on learning to more than 205 Jewish day schools and yeshivot spanning 18 states.

Because of your support, tens of thousands of Jewish students will graduate ready to enter the ever-changing workforce. Choose gifts for Jewish students at CIJE.org/Chanukah and personalize a card about your meaningful gift, to be delivered to your loved one’s mailbox.


Robert A. Cumins, Photographer

“Ahava.” Don’t delay the opportunity to order this beautiful, unique acrylic on metal photographic print of the glorious sunset interposed with the Ahava (love) sculpture (created by the renowned artist Robert Indiana) that stands at the entrance to Jerusalem’s Israel Museum.

Award-winning documentary still photographer Robert A. Cumins, who has been traveling to and photographing Israel since 1973, made this photograph 40 years ago and is now offering it to you in three different sizes.

Cumins has visited Israel well over 200 times during his career. His photographs have graced the covers and inside pages of magazines and other media around the world. He has covered humanitarian issues, politics and major events of the Jewish world throughout his career.

The photograph he made on September 11, 2001 (People Magazine) was said to be one of the most iconic images of that tragic day for America.

Ahava means love. What a heartwarming welcome this print would make hanging in the entrance foyer of your home.
