Giving African Jewish handicrafts such as Challah covers, necklaces or kippot makes the connection to our global brothers and sisters all the stronger. Not only are these items beautiful but they bring twice the light, to those who receive them and those who make them too!


Rolled from recycled magazines, Ugandan necklaces are both stylish and environmentally sustainable. Not only are they perfect holiday gifts, but 100% of all profits benefit women and children.

The women who craft the necklaces take great joy in their work, taking a tremendous sense of personal accomplishment and pride, knowing the work not only helps their families, but also projects that benefit the community.

Even in our connected world, Jewish life in Africa can seem far away from America. Yet the Jews of Uganda and other African communities celebrate Hanukkah much as we do, by lighting candles, singing songs, and gathering to share food.

Giving African Jewish handicrafts such as Challah covers, necklaces or kippot makes the connection to our global brothers and sisters all the stronger. Not only are these items beautiful but they bring twice the light, to those who receive them and those who make them too!
