The Mensch on a Bench
The Mensch on a Bench is a NEW Hanukkah Tradition meant to bring families together.
Adding More Funukkah to Hanukkah.
That is what started this whole thing.
Mensch on a Bench was created by a Jewish father who wanted to teach his sons about the Jewish holiday while adding new traditions to the family. First came the story of Moshe the Mensch who helped Judah Maccabee at the temple. Moshe played dreidel, loved gelt, and was a true Mensch. Next came the doll which could hold the Shamash candle and watch over the Menorah.
