Maccabee on the Mantel vs. Elf on the Shelf

David Thompson
5 years ago|31 views
Move over Elf on the Shelf and make room for the holiday companion that is over 5000 years in the making – it’s Maccabee on the Mantel, an adorable plush doll and accompanying storybook that teaches children about the origins of Hanukkah and celebrate one of the culture’s most prominent but often misunderstood traditions. Conceived of by mother of two and pre-school temple instructor Abra Liberman-Garrett, Maccabee on the Mantel is a huggable stuffed Maccabeean soldier whose personal story in the book illustrates the escape of the chosen people from the brutal King Antiochus. With the aid of her friends at Fort Worth’s legendary improvisation and comedy troupe Four Day Weekend, Liberman-Garrett invented a holiday product that is kid-tested and Rabbi-approved.
