Jewish children who want to dress up as a “Jewish Grand Rabbi” or “Jewish Mother Rachel” can now do so, thanks to Walmart. In an article by Heeb magazine, the costumes, $27.10 and $25.51 respectively, were featured as an attempt to reach out to Jewish customers.
The rabbi costume features a sputik hat with attached sidelocks and a gold and black kaputa robe. The Mother Rachel costume features a pillbox hat and blue veil, with a blue and white dress featuring a picture of the Tomb of Rachel.
