כ״ד בכסלו ה׳תשע״ד (November 27, 2013)
Thanksgivukkah* is almost here, bringing with it sufganiyot, menorahs and turkey. Speaking about menorah and turkey… when you combine these two words into one, you get Menurkey.
Commemorating the rare overlap of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, the Menurkey was conceived and designed by 10-year-old New York resident Asher Weintraub.
Starting with his design in 3D and then adapted to plaster and clay, Asher and his parents raised twice their Kickstarter goal to bring this unique Hanukkiyah to life. Menurkey has been featured on the cover of popular newspapers and being sold on the Menurkey website as well as through New York’s venerable Jewish Museum shop (sold out).
Hanukkiyah that has taken the world by storm now has an iPhone app. You can light candles with the touch of your finger.
App automatically shows the right number of candles per day of Hanukkah, candles melt down over 30 minutes.
It’s cute and fun app, but don’t forget light a real Menorah made of candle or oil.
