Most people are familiar with the adage “A Jewish boy (or girl) loves his mother.” It’s so obvious it almost goes without saying. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love their mother dearly? Although there is technically a Jewish Mother’s Day on our calendar, the non-religious nature of the holiday means most Jews celebrate Mother’s Day as it stands on their national calendar. For North American Jews, that means Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11th. That gives you a just a few more weeks to shop for a gift.
A great place to begin your search is our Jewish gifts section. We have everything mom could want this year, from sterling silver jewelry to decorative items and religious artifacts. If you are looking for something to brighten your mother’s home, you have come to the right place. Picture frames, artwork, and candle holders are all terrific options for mom.

This year Lag Ba’Omer begins sundown, Saturday, April 28th and ends sundown Sunday, April 29th. Lag Ba’Omer signifies the breaking of the 33 days of Omer mourning. It is the first day celebrations are allowed, and people take full advantage of the loosening of restrictions on dancing, singing and merrymaking. Although rooted in the biblical tradition of the Counting of the Omer, the holiday has taken on a modern meaning all its own.
Because the lifting of restrictions aligns with spring, many families celebrate by enjoying the outdoors. This has led to the holiday’s rugged spirit. The state of Israel has marked Lag Ba’Omer as a day of celebrating the fighting Jewish spirit. People barbeque, picnic, hike and enjoy the outdoors to mark spring, celebrate Jewish feistiness and break free from the mourning period. Creating a bonfire is probably the most well-known and recognized Lag Ba’Omer tradition. It is also a popular day for weddings because it is among the first warm days where celebrating is once again allowed. Lag Ba’Omer is typically not a gift giving holiday, though children often get small gifts like toy bows and arrows or other outdoor play items.
The act of buying a gift for someone, especially a faith-affirming Jewish gift, is powerful. The problem is that it is often fraught with hardship. Will the recipient like the gift? Is it properly sized for them? Is there something else they would prefer or need more? These are only some of the questions you may be asking yourself before making a gift purchase. Shopping for people we are close with can be even more nerve-racking because of the fear your gift will not live up to expectations. Luckily, Eichler’s has a perfect solution–the Eichler’s gift certificate–available for both our online store and our Brooklyn location.
Eichler’s gift certificates empower the recipients to decide exactly what they want, whether that be tzitzis, Jewish books, CDs or other goods. Unlike a gift card to a massive chain store, an Eichler’s gift card gives the recipient a choice from a variety of Judaic goods. The gift is both personal in nature and open ended, a win-win for giver and recipient. All you have to do is go to Eichers.com, choose an amount, and put in the recipient’s address. Your gift card will be in the mail by the next business day. Sometimes life really is this simple!
If your kids are getting to the age where they want to start dressing themselves, you are probably feeling a mix of both joy and anxiety. It’s always nice to see your kids making their own choices, but you also do not want to see them making the wrong choices. Lots of children clash with their parents about what to wear. This is especially true if you want to make sure your kids are dressing in line with Judaic ideas. Our kids yarmulkas are a great option because both parents and kids love them.
Our hand painted yarmulkas feature bright, colorful designs on black velvet. They are formal enough to satisfy parents while still maintaining appeal to children. The price will satisfy parents too, our hand painted yarmulkas are under $13. For something less formal and more playful, check out our fabric yarmulkas for kids. They feature sports themes and characters that kids will love. Our fabric yarmulkas are a bit more labor intensive and cost about $15.
No matter what phase your child is going through, we have a yarmulka for them, one that you will like too. Check out our kids section to see them all.
It’s not surprising that spring and summer are the most popular times of year to get married. Who doesn’t want to get married on a warm, sunny day with flowers in full bloom? Have you looked at your summer schedule? How many marriages will you be attending this summer? Each one will surely be wonderful, but you will also need a gift for each one. If the couple has decided not to go the route of a wedding registry, gifting becomes an arduous task. Luckily, Eichlers.com has an extensive selection for Jewish marriages.
Want to send the lucky couple off in the right direction? We have a number of books about how newlyweds can build a strong marriage. The new couple will be starting a home together, so wine glasses, a Seder plate, candle holders for the Sabbath and other home goods will certainly be put to good use. Feeling indecisive? Maybe you are not sure what the young couple needs? Go with an Eichler’s gift certificate. It is useable on anything in the Eichlers.com catalog so the couple can decide what they want for their new life.
Is there anything more joyous than two Jewish people spending the rest of their lives together? We think not! Celebrate the occasion with a Jewish gift.
We are just coming off Purim and are already starting to prepare for Passover 2013. This is great news if you enjoy the holidays, but not if you are on a diet! Purim can be especially difficult because the holiday revolves around candy and sweets. Passover is less indulgent but can still be a time of weight gain for people with a weakness for good food. What can you do to make the meal more dietetic?
Luckily the general Passover spread is not necessarily that unhealthy. Traditional Passover dishes like carrot salad, maror, and charoset are healthy and low fat. Start by filling up on those. Matzo ball soup can be healthy too. Avoid a rich chicken stock and instead opt for a vegetable soup base with matzo balls. Choose gefilte fish as your main entree. Compared to lamb and other typical Passover main courses, it is the healthiest and lowest in calories.
You can still enjoy matzo, kugel, red meat and other holiday favorites, but those are foods to be eaten in moderation. If you are drinking wine, choose something dryer because a sweeter wine will have more calories. What to do for dessert? This part is the hardest for most dieters, but the best thing you can do is stick to fruit salad over cake.
