Chanukah is really about celebrating how being Jewish makes us different.
Not Gollum different, but Gandalf different.
Turning it into the Jewish Christmas misses the whole point.
So to get into the Chanukah spirit, let’s celebrate these 8 differences between Jews
and the rest of the world.
Jewish Names: Forget Brittany and Tiffany.
How about Bracha or RaCHel Be bold – embrace the CHHHHH.
Clothing: Tired of keeping up with the Kardashians?
Check out the modest yet fashionable style of Mayim Bialik that’s been the hallmark
of Jews throughout the ages.
Speak Hebrew: Besides being lashon Hakodesh, the holy language, it’s the easiest way
to be like Gal Gadot.
Shabbat: For 25 hours you can actually look at peoples’ real faces,
not just pictures of their faces.
And then talk to them.
Face to face!
Keeping Kosher: Nothing says Jewish more than saying – “Sorry guys, I can’t join you
at the Bacon Barn tonight.”
Lots of cool people keep kosher, from the Maccabees to the Maccabeets .
Israel: You don’t get the whole Christmas vibe here in Israel.
Because this is the only Jewish country in the world, the ideal
place for the Jewish people to set up shop.
For thousands of years we’ve been yearning to
return, and now it’s miraculously rebuilt!
And we have the best humus in the world.
Torah: We’ve been called “The People of the Book.”
And not just any book, but THE book.
The Torah, the world’s biggest selling book that’s changed the world.
Unique Mission: Want to really make your mark on the world?
Light it up.
That’s the mission of the Jewish people.
