10 Best Sabbath Mode Refrigerators [Star-K] for Shabbos & Jewish Holidays (2019)

Remember the days you had to manually turn off the refrigerator lights before Shabbat?

Ugh…

I remember I had to unscrew the lightbulb, cover the switch with scotch tape and find all sorts of creative (read: annoying) workarounds.

Well, not anymore!

Thankfully, some of the biggest refrigerator brands came to the rescue and created Sabbath mode refrigerators to make our lives much easier.

In fact – the only problem now is that there are too many Sabbath mode fridges to choose from.

Everyone is throwing buzzwords, deals, coupons our way – all in the attempt to catch our attention.

  • What does Sabbath mode and Star-K even mean?

You’re cooking & preparing food for Shabbat…

Yummy! It looks (and smells) delicious!

Unless you get a Shabbat hot plate (or blech) that’ll keep your food warm, fresh and delicious for the entire Shabbat!

20+ Beautiful Modern & Contemporary Menorahs for Hanukkah (2019)

I assume this isn’t the first you’re celebrating Hanukkah (unless you’re like 3 years old… in which case – what are you doing on the internet, child?!)…

Then I suppose you’ve seen a traditional Jewish Menorah or two in your lifetime… (it looks something like this 🕎)

Well, let me tell ya – if all of the Menorahs you’ve ever seen (or owned) look kind of the same – then you’ve been missing out on a whole lot.

Just like Apple comes out with new inventions every once in a while (probably less so, these days) – so do creative & talented Jewish artists come up with new modern & contemporary Menorahs (except they don’t normally charge you $1,000 for it as Apple does).

Yes, Hanukkah is a traditional Jewish holiday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it with a beautiful modern Menorah!

16 Best Electric Menorahs (LED) & Battery/USB-Operated Menorahs [Hanukkah 2019]

Hanukkah is almost here…

The Jewish festival of lights is all about spreading light and joy to our friends, family, and neighbors.

And what better way to do just that than by having a gorgeous electric Menorah shine a bright light in our house and to the public.

While it’s not a replacement for a true (Kosher) Hanukkah Menorah – it can surely spread light (literally and spiritually) and bring the spirit of Hanukkah to our friends and loved ones… and that’s exactly what the festival of lights is all about.

Note: I highlighted that sentence for a reason – a battery-operated Menorah does NOT fulfill the Mitzvah of lighting a real Hanukkah Menorah.

On that note, let’s have a look at the best electric & LED Menorahs that will brighten up our house, street, and moods during the 8 days of Hanukkah.
