A Hanukkah Gingerbread House, a.k.a., "The Edible Shtetl." Article in the Forward and instructions here:H/T: The Religion News Roundup via RNS
What's there not to love about a taffy mezuza and a dreidel steeple? ;)
Yech. I hope some gingerbread cossacks burn it down.
There's a house on Monterey Blvd in San Francisco (Ed G ... it's btw Portola & 280 on the east side of the street) that looks way too much like this place. Wayyyyyyy too much!
A Jewish friend decorated her house with electrical garlands, to the dismay of her mother. But she chose blue and white garlands instead of red and green, for a Jewish touch. She justified the garlands by saying that December is so dark and dreary that one needed a little cheer and celebration.
Almost as fabulous as the Challah Turkey. http://www.kveller.com/blog/activities/friday-night-turkey-challah/
