WOODBRIDGE - The Judaica Shop at Congregation B’nai Jacob is showcasing unique items among its collection menorahs, dreidels and other symbols of Chanukah that reflect the sense of community spirit in recovering from Hurricane Sandy as well as the spirit of the Jewish holiday, according to a statement.
"The Community Menorah by Ivan McLean, depicts energetic figures as candleholders, twisting and turning, bounding with joy while still joined to each other," the statement said.
"This metal menorah beautifully expresses how when people come together, as they have in response to recent events like Hurricane Sandy, they bring light. The menorah’s simple, good-natured design celebrates the warm feelings of every Chanukah celebration and makes a striking conversation piece all year-round."
