Description: Judaism's not known for its religious gewgaws and knickknacks. The Chosen People got the Torah, but the icon ashtrays and dashboard saints went to the Christians. Nor does Judaism have much of a reputation for zesty cuisine -- schav and herring don't necessarily set the mouth to watering. But these are trifling matters, especially when you consider the raw materials of the Jewish religion ripe for bedecking, embellishing, and spicing up. Enter Judaikitsch, your inspirational guide to snazzing up tradition.
Who could say no to Starlet of David Sunglasses, Patron Jew Votive Candles, a Mah-Jongg Menorah, or Steppin' Out Yarmulkes? Or how about delicious dishes like Poi Vey Pineapple Mold, Mt. Sinai Sundae, and Boogie Woogie Kugel? Dozens of projects come with step-by-step directions. Full menus for all the major holidays feature simple recipes along with serving and entertaining suggestions. With plenty of technicolor photographs of bedazzling kitsch throughout, Judaikitsch shows you what might happen if Martha Stewart was abducted by a tribe of trailer-park rabbis. So you'll read, you'll craft, you'll have a nice snack. What are you waiting for, nu?
