Hanukkah Gifts that Give Back

This has been a year unlike any other and B’ShERT has proven itself to be a haven of Jewish community at a very lonely and disconnected time. If you’re feeling, this year especially, that you want to see your community at B’ShERT continue to thrive, you can help out just by… buying yourself or your loved ones a Hanukkah gift!

Two artisans have graciously partnered with B’ShERT to offer YOU a unique, safe buying opportunity for the holidays. Visit these two websites on Etsy and 10% of your purchases will be donated back to the Temple.

At this challenging time, when you cannot be with friends & family, show that you are thinking of them with a handmade one-of-a-kind gift, shipped directly to their door, wrapped with love and that extra special personal touch!
