Jewish Gingering.



Just when you thought Gingerbread Houses were only for those of the Christmasy persuasion, Chavi came up with the newest new-age Jewish holiday activity: the construction of the GingerShul!

I was checking out the local Wal-Mart when I saw the Gingerbread House kit, and thought ... that would make a really stellar gingerbread synagogue. So the kit was purchased and this weekend, while enjoying some rest and relaxation in the Poconos, the gingerbread shul was built and I think it came out quite smashingly.

For more photos, find me on Facebook and you can see the entire process ... it was quite a time! And no, I don't plan on eating it ... for many reasons. But hey, it looks cool sitting by the fire!

Cool... During Sukkot my 10 year old made a Gingerbread sukkah. Yum!

I love the shul and also the product placement of the JPS hebre-English Tanakh in the background - very subtle!

Hope all is well with you missus and fingers crossed oh so many times for your dad.

Ooo! Gingerbread Sukkot -- what an outstanding idea. It's like gingerbread was made for it. Great idea @GR/@Phyllis!

@Rachel Heh. That's my go-to Tanakh for translation! And thank you re: my dad. It means a lot, you know.

A few Pesachs ago we built a matzah replica of the Hillel building at UCSB. Your project reminded me of that...

I love the Christmas season -- and very much love when Jews find ways to make typically "Christmas" things Jewy. This is great! <3

@gabor That's really rad :D

@Kate It's nice when we can find our own little way of making Christmas traditions WAY MORE AWESOME than they originally were, no?
