2. Introducing… Holidays in a Box

These Curated Artisan Boxes are full of Simcha (Joy) to bring us together during our Jewish holidays. Whether Jewish, Jew-ish, or just into experiencing new arts and cultural traditions, these Holiday Boxes make for great gifts for you or Friends and Family. With so much uncertainty in the world, new art, foods and rituals, allow us to form deeper connections to ourselves and the traditions of the Jewish people. Giving a box as a gift? Jewish holidays are a perfect time to spread light into the world. Your Box supports local artists, artisans, and craftspeople, as well as organizations that bring you joyous Jewish arts & culture all year. Holidays in a Box is a partnership of ish, HUC-JIR, and Roots of Reform, supported by the Rockwern Foundation. Order Yours (and one for a friend) today!
