What is Passover?

Passover is a festival of freedom which commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt.

Jews all over the world celebrate Passover for seven days and, while the date varies from year to year, it’s always the same on the Jewish lunar calendar: the 15th day of Nissan, the first month of the Hebrew monthly calendar year, typically falling in mid-spring.

The main ritual of Passover is the Seder — a festive meal with family which occurs on the first night of the holiday. During the Seder a number of symbolic foods are served including wine, matzah bread, and other all kosher dishes.

Thanksgivukkah: Once-in-a-Lifetime Kosher Gifts

GiftBasketsOverseas.com releases an Exclusive line of Kosher personal & corporate gift baskets for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah

ARLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — GiftBasketsOverseas.com, the experts in international gift delivery, is offering its customers a literal once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate Thanksgivukkah with loved ones around the world. For only the second time in history, Thanksgiving will happen during the 8-day holiday of Hanukkah – creating a holiday called Thanksgivukkah. To mark the occasion, GiftBasketsOverseas.com has updated its online catalog with family and office-friendly gift baskets for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah – ideal holidays for expressing gratitude and appreciation. Customers will find an array of gourmet foods, wines and spirits, confections and chocolates, and – of course – kosher gifts for international delivery in over 180 countries in as little as 3 business days.

Hanukkah happens at the same time each year on the Hebrew calendar, but the difference in the length of months between the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars makes the date of the holiday occur on different dates in the Western calendar. Usually, Hanukkah and Christmas happen around the same time but in 2013, Hanukkah comes (seemingly) early on the Gregorian calendar — and Thanksgiving is happening late — so the two holidays will overlap.

This unique occurrence has happened only once before since Thanksgiving became an official holiday, and will not happen again for another 79,043 years. The rarity of this combination celebration has prompted many to dub the nearly once-in-a-millennia holiday “Thanksgivukkah,” and ponder the best ways to uphold the traditions of each holiday. Families are balancing the fiery hues of autumn with the cool colors of Hanukkah, perfecting kosher Thanksgiving menus, and sending thankfulness-themed gifts to important people in their lives. Even business owners are expressing appreciation for employees and customers with Thanksgivukkah gifts. Customers looking for the kosher gifts to send to Israel, the USA, and 180 countries around the world for Hanukkah or Thanksgivukkah only need to browse GiftBasketsOverseas.com’s online catalog.

Hanukkah Gift Basket Ideas

Hanukkah (or Chanukah) is the eight-day Jewish festival of light that starts on the eve of the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, spirit over material.

The history of the holiday dates back to over 2000 years ago when the Land of Israel came under the rule of the Greek emperor Antiochus, who outlawed the study of Torah and defiled the Holy Temple in Jerusalem with Greek idols. But a small group of Jews miraculously managed to defeat the strong enemy and regained the Holy Temple. But when they tried to light the Temple’s candelabrum they found out that the Greeks polluted all their oil. There was some pure oil left enough for only one night and it would take eight days to get new oil. But a miracle happened and the remaining oil lasted for eight days instead of one and that’s when the Hanukkah was established.

To commemorate those wonders on each Hanukkah Jewish people eat oily foods and light a menorah candelabrum (also known as a chanukiah) on each of the eight nights of Hanukkah starting this year on November 27, 2013.

Because of the great significance of oil in the story of the Hanukkah miracle, oily foods reflecting the meaning of the holiday became traditional. Among the most popular Hanukkah dishes are latkes (fried potato pancakes), sufganiot (deep-fried doughnuts with jelly), dairy products and cheese.

Other Hanukkah traditions include spending time with family, singing songs, playing Hanukkah dreidel (a four-sided spinning top with a Hebrew letter on each side) and sending Hanukkah gifts to friends, relatives and business associates.

HEALTHY GIFT BASKETS

There’s a great number of healthy Hanukkah gift baskets for your family, friends, business associates, boss or employees. Choose between a fresh fruit basket full of vitamins which contains a big selection of seasonal and exotic fruit as well as other delicious snacks of your choice. Or a gift tray with nutritious and flavorful nuts and dried fruit like dates, raisins, apricots, ginger, cranberries, kiwi, strawberries, coconut and more. Perfect for office parties or home gatherings such a thoughtful gift will have something for everyone to enjoy!

Dark and milk сhocolates of different flavors, сookies, truffles, bonbons, halva, fruit jams, honey and more delicious treats to any taste will be beautifully packed for your dear recipients in a gift box, keepsake hamper, gift tower or even a treasure chest.

Rosh Hashanah Gift Baskets Ideas

Starting at sunset on September 4, 2013, is one of the holiest days of the year in the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah or Jewish New Year. The holiday commemorates the creation of a man and is considered to be the time for visiting synagogues and reflecting on the mistakes made in the past year and planning for self improvement in the following one.

Similar to the rest of the world Jewish New Year is celebrated with a big pomp. The festivities last for two days and are accompanied by various traditions including blowing a shofar (a horn used for Jewish religious purposes) and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey and other.

Sweets for Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is a time of sweet celebration, and the foods eaten during the holiday reflect that. Eating sweets during Jewish New Year is a part of the tradition and it represents sweet promises, hopes and opportunities in the upcoming year.

The main symbol of hopes for a sweet New Year in Jewish culture is apples dipped in honey. Another traditional treat is sweet bread called challah. The round shape of challah symbolizes the never-ending cycle of life and is usually eaten with honey symbolic of happy life and success.

If you’re sending a gift for Rosh Hashanah to your relatives, friends, loved ones or business colleagues, make sure it includes these symbols of Jewish New Year which will bring your dear recipients fortune and luck.

Fruit for Rosh Hashanah

Fruit are sweet, delicious, healthy and very appropriate at a festive Rosh Hashanah table. The ritual of eating fruit during the holiday reminds people to appreciate the fruits of the earth and being alive to enjoy them. Along with apples dipped in honey people traditionally eat pomegranates on the second night of Rosh Hashanah. A pomegranate is often used as a “new fruit” – meaning, a fruit not yet eaten this season. Its abundant seeds symbolize fertility, hopes for good deeds and merits in the upcoming year.

When searching for a fruit basket for Jewish New Year choose hampers which contain traditional symbolic fruit as well as all time favorites like dates, figs, nuts, dried and fresh fruit. Consider the number of recipients and choose the size of the basket accordingly. Make sure everyone has a chance to enjoy your delicious token!

Kosher Gifts for Rosh Hashanah

Jewish holidays often center around food and Rosh Hashanah is no exception. Jewish New Year is traditionally celebrated in a big company of relatives and friends who share the festive meal together.

Passover Kosher Gifts to Israel & Worldwide!

   

Passover, or Pesach, is the most-celebrated Jewish holiday of the year. It is a celebration of spring, birth and freedom of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, led by the prophet Moses.

In most of the world, Passover lasts eight days beginning at sundown on the 15th of Nisan. In Israel, it lasts only seven days and this year is observed from March, 25 until April, 2.

Passover is a time for Jews around the world to remember the hardships and joys of people who have observed their faith for thousands of years. The central ritual of Passover is the Seder, a big family feast that marks the beginning of Pesach.

During the Seder a number of symbolic foods are laid out on the table, of which the most important is wine and the matzah, unleavened bread eaten to commemorate the haste with which the Jews had to leave Egypt (there was even no time to let their bread rise). All food at the Seder must be kosher. Foods that include any leavened products such as bread, cake, cookies, pasta or beer is considered chametz and are prohibited throughout the holiday.

Send Passover gifts to Israel to your friends and family members to celebrate this significant holiday and commemorate the freedom of the Jewish people. Keep the common tradition of exchanging Pesach gifts with the ones you love, even if they are far away!

Order your Kosher gift baskets before March, 18, and save $8 off your order with a coupon code WSG49!
