    1. No Nostalgia for Waxing

    This Chanukah, there is no more scraping, boiling water, melting with a hair dryer or freezing to remove wax drippings from your menorah because Wax-Off prevents wax from sticking to any candle-holder surface. Visit www.wax-off.net...

    The idea of a rabbi doll came to Gary Barris while he was shopping during the holiday season two years ago.

  • Relying on Miracles

    Before the last Chanukah candle is lit, I'd like to say a word about miracles.
