Coolest Yahrzeit Candles

Coolest Yahrzeit Candles

For a really cool relative who passed away, I recommend this yahrzeit candle made out of a beer can. Fact is, any can will do. You need a can of your relative’s favorite beer, an old flannel shirt (to cut strips for the wicks), a scissors (because tearing flannel and beer cans with your bare hands can be a challenge), olive oil, lighter fluid, gasoline sucked from the neighbor’s tank, whatever burns good, and matches.

My dad’s yahrzeit was on Monday. He was a cool guy for sure, but we opted for the traditional candles. Mostly because I only saw this video clip Tuesday morning. I’m thinking next year maybe go with his favorite, beer, Maccabee.

Probably not…

Now, I wrote yahrzeit candles, but this dude is aiming for folks who endure those pesky blackouts in Moscow and need candles. Although I have no idea how one might perform this arts and crafts project in the dark.

Also, the same technique would work for Shabbat and Chanukah candles as well. And for blackouts outside Moscow.

    I read the article the idea as well as the "journalist" who wrote are both idiotic as well as insulting.

    Nothing wrong with personalizing the memory rather than one-kind-fits-all.

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
