The Chabad Jewish Center of Palm Coast has opened its first-ever pop-up shop for Hanukkah.
Chabad Jewish Center office manager Lisa Laubenstein said Rabbi Levi Ezagui and his wife Tzivie were inspired to include the shop after seeing something similar at other synagogues. Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights, is celebrated this year from Dec. 7 to Dec. 14, and the shop is intended to help supply locals with their Hanukkah needs, Laubenstein said.
“In New York, you can find what you need for Hanukkah anywhere. In a big city, like Boston and Philadelphia,” she said. “But in small towns, you may not find as much in the stores.”
With the pop-up, she said, locals can shop at the Chabad Jewish Center for their needs.
The shop sells menorahs, dreidels, chocolate gelt, drip trays, Hanukkah-themed decor, toys for kids, gift wrap, cards and more.
The pop-up shop is open from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday to Friday, until Dec. 6 at the Chabad Jewish Center of Palm Coast.
The Chabad Jewish Center is in the shopping center at 160 Cypress Point Parkway, Suite A208, on the second floor.
Laubenstein said the items are priced from 50 cents for a toy dreidel to up to $50 for a silver necklace, though most items are between $5-$10.
The proceeds from the shop will help support the Chabad Jewish Center’s community events, services and outreach.
Laubenstein said the shop will be back next year in some capacity, depending on the success of this year.
“We may go bigger next year if we have a nice success here,” she said.
