Actor Jeff Goldblum joins Martha Stewart in making a manzanita-branch menorah for Hanukkah.
Possibly the most un-Jewish looking menorah ever – but pretty, nonetheless. Still, so out of left field. It’s like you left the house for a few days and asked your Polish farmer neighbor to make you a menorah. You explained, too: needs eight candles, and a spot for another candle, and make it look Jewish…
Martha said you must use a cutting board. Never use a sharp knife on your table.
It’s one of the first things you learn in the big house.
