    My Favorite New Menorahs -- 2010 Hanukkah Gift Guide

    Taking an innovative approach to Hanukkah doesn’t mean downloading a menorah-lighting-app to your iPhone. Keep tradition burning with these modern interpretations of menorahs for your home:

    Areaware improves an ancient design by integrating a tray to their Wrought Iron Menorah ($150) that catches the candle drippings. I love this menorah because the lines are sleek, simple and modern but the heaftiness makes it feel like a barn-shed tool in your hand. Very manly.

    Peacocks are a hot motif this year. Jonathan Adler’s Peacock Menorah ($120) will give you something to strut about: either you’ve given the best gift at the party or you’ve got the finest menorah on the block. (Pictured with our candles.)

    Designed in Israel, handmade from resin in a Bulgarian fair-trade women's work group, the Funky Menorah by Lalo Treasures ($98) will fill all eight crazy nights with sparkle and flair.

    Upgrade your menorah lighting experience. Use modern, tubular, drip-less candles like these above that we gifted to Jonathan Adler ($14). Lose the free matches from the diner, light up with a bang with Pistolight by Sooda Mayer ($10) or go old style but in style with Jonathan Adler's Pipe Match Holder and Strike!

    See our entire 2010 Hanukkah Gift Guide for unique Hanukkah gifts for everyone. Even your non-Jewish friends will want this stuff it's so fab.

    What's New On ModernTribe

    Penguin Salt and Pepper Shakers by Jonathan Adler. Renowned designer Jonathan Adler creates whimsical ceramic gems that shine with his signature "happy chic" motif. We present to you his Penguin Salt and Pepper Shakers.

    Adler has created some amazing Judaica for the contemporary design customer. Some of our other favorites are the Enamel Menorah, Eve Candleholders, and the Bird Bowls.

    What do penguins have to do with Judaica? Not much. Though when I was a kid I loved penguins...and I still do.


    Craftsman Elephant Mezuzah for a Child. The Craftsman Elephant Mezuzah by Lev Studios introduces a new theme to ModernTribe. This sand-blasted, hand-painted maple wood mezuzah with Swarovski crystals is neo-folk and modern. The delicacy of the woodland motif reveals a cute little elephant and is adorable for a child's doorpost.

    The Craftsman style is a great look for anyone who likes the "urban cottage" feel of primitive home decor in a contemporary setting.

    ModernTribe also carries this youthful look in the Elephant Menorah, Ladybug Mezuzah and Ladybug Tzedakah Box.




    Hip Hop Alef by Swedish Designer Anne-Marie Bernhardt. Since Aleph is my name, you have to know I'd include an aleph/alef product any chance I can! We are very excited to bring you this piece from Anne-Marie Bernhardt´s Jewish Jewelry Collection. Anne-Marie is a jewelry designer, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and educated and living in Stockholm, Sweden. A Swedish Jew designing Jewish jewelry: you'll only find this at ModernTribe!

    The Hip Hop Alef is sterling silver and measures 22 mm x 23 mm (about .9 inches in diameter). It's on a 17" heavy sterling rectangular link chain.

    We also have the pendant on a 20" cable chain.

    Have a great week and Happy Shopping!
