Best low budget gifts from Israel

Yad Lakashish

Yad Lakashish, one of the most famous Israeli non-profits features a beautiful set of Hanukkah related gifts, including gifts for any budget. Purchasing from Yad Lakashish adds extra meaning to your gift this season, knowing that each product is made by the elderly of Jerusalem, giving them a sense of purpose and in this case, beautiful gifts to others! Many of the Yad Lakashish members are Holocaust survivors or Jewish immigrants from the FSU, Ethiopia, Iran and South America, who faced extreme challenges when arriving in Israel. Your support helps them remain part of society with meaningful work.

Inna Olshansky Judaica

One tradition that I love during Channukah is that everyone in our family lights their own menorah. When they were little, my kids made them in daycare, but today, they each have their own set piece that we’ve purchased over the years. These adorable menorahs will keep your kids engaged throughout the entire holiday… they’re so cool!
