The annual Chanukkah business has begun and toy stores are making lots of profits. Families are buying presents for the kids and those who cannot afford Toys R us usually buy at cheap chains such as Maxstock or Kfar HaSha’ashu’im. The quality of the products may not be the best but it is enough for kids to play with.

An important Chanukkah-Mitzvah:
“Lefarsem et HaNess-To publicize the (Chanukkah) miracle”.
In Jerusalem you find lots of frum families lighting their Chanukkiah outside their front door. In order to protect the candles from the wind, people put the Chanukkiah into glass containers. The above picture shows a shop offering a whole variety of these glass containers.
