You read that right- Hanukkah came early this year, kids. If gentiles can have Christmas is July, then what is stopping us from taking Hanukkah/Chanukah in August? Nothing, I say! Not only have my Mexican Potato Latkes been all over the interwebs as of late (such as here and here) but I stumbled upon this BRILLIANT Kickstarter campaign for not so ugly Hanukkah sweaters by Geltfiend. What’s Kickstarter you ask? Good question! Basically, you post your proposed idea and a fundraising goal and voila! Watch the money roll in. With Geltfiend, you can pre-order an adorable sweater at a discounted price, and help a fellow Jew out all in one purchase. What could a Jew possibly want more besides saving money while performing a mitzvah? It’s a win/win!
Just check out their adorable video:
Bwahaha don’t Jew just love it? Fourth meal with Isaac Berger. I giggle like a school girl every time I watch! Lucky for us, the lovely folks at Geltfiend has gifted WJWE one sweater to give away to a lucky reader as a “thank you” for all your votes so far in the Daily Candy Start Small, Go Big Contest!!! I nearly plotzed when I heard that news myself. I am partial to the Spinster since I look adorable in blue and gimmels:
But I also love the precious Hasidic clan on the Borough Park:
Especially if that fine kosher lad is free with purchase. Rour. So how do you win? Great question! Here is all it takes.
- Vote for What Jew Wanna Eat in the Daily Candy Start Small, Get Big contest every day for the next three days. (Contest ends at 11:59pm ET on Friday, August 24th). Make sure to pick one person in each category in order for your vote to count! You can even win money and prizes for voting!! Okay this isn’t required but highly suggested.
- Most importantly, check out Geltfiend’s website and leave a comment letting me know which sweater is your fave. Check out their Kickstarter too and consider investing!
You have between now and Tuesday, August 28th at 11:59pm CT to enter. Winner will be announced on Wednesday, August 29th. Good luck!
*Geltfiend gave me a sweater to giveaway, but all opinions are my own. And my opinion is that they are awesome. Note that the winner will not receive the sweater until Geltfiend starts shipping in November, but I promise it will be worth the wait!
