Hanukkah commercialized

Gifts are not traditionally given on Hanukkah. Nevertheless, a small industry has started to develop Hanukkah products. No wonder that some objects in our collection are blue-white-plushy – and “made in China” …

The picture shows a doll made of skin-colored plush velvet. The figure is wearing a sleeveless, knee-length blue cotton tunic, which is girded and knotted at the waist with a violet ribbon.
