Retail Therapy: 10 Things To Buy Yourself Right Now To Spark Jewish Joy (& Give Back To Israel!)

Shloshim are over, now it’s time to amplify our Jewish Joy – in prayer, song, laughter, and retail therapy!  If we lose our lust for life, the terrorists win, and we won’t let that happen. Since October 7th, none of us have been the same, nor will we ever be again, but tiny actions each day help the healing and rebuilding. Shopping – scientifically – gives us an endorphin rush, so today’s prescription from Doctor Girlie is to shop to help Israel and the Jewish people! All the items below give a strong percentage (if not the entire %) towards charities and nonprofits that support us, so it’s a truly a win/win. If you’re smart (and we know you are) – you’ll grab your Chanukah presents now!

Jewish and Grateful teamed up with celebrity-favorite Lingua Franca for these custom made sweaters to express our solidarity and support with Israel and our collective Jewish nation. All proceeds will go directly to the FIDF, UJA Israel Emergency Fund and Ahava Baby Israel Division.  3 chic designs, 4 colorways. Note: These are cashmere, so they won’t work for the vegan set.

Israel Is My Home, $432

An iconic piece, this Magen David & diamond combination from Rachie Shnay is sure to bring you blessing and protection.

The Mazel Ring, $1,450

This one isn’t exactly for you personally to use, but it will make your heart expand 10 sizes when you order it. The kids in Israel have had their lives turned upside down. Tens of thousands of families have been displaced by the October 7th massacre, and hundreds of thousands of children are disrupted with parents called to war.  An American woman, along with her candy company owner friend in Israel created an initiative to bring them cheer by sending them sweet treats. Sending them packages of sweet treats will bring them joy and a taste of normalcy.  Let’s show the children of Israel that we are here for them, that they are not alone.

Sweet Connections Box $50-360

Today, if you haven’t yet, purchase a local synagogue membership – yes – we said it.  No excuses. Memberships world-wide have been on the decline for years. It’s time to fix that. Maybe you’ve been far from your relationship with Judaism for a long time, no worries, Hashem is always waiting and there are no rules with your relationship with G-d! As I’ve said before, there is a temple for every timbre and a pot for every lid – from Orthodox and Chabad to LGBTQ-affirming Reform shuls – find your spiritual place and get involved. Go to events, fundraise, get active. History shows us that when we lose community, we lose ourselves. Donating to your local temple by joining is a win for you and your family, and keeps our people strong.
