Rabbis around the country are talking about our products.

What more appropriate holiday for magic tricks than Hanukkah — the holiday that is based on the famous legend of the cruse of oil meant to burn just one day, lasting for not two, not three, but eight entire days — which is among the most magical events in the life of the Jewish people. The same people who brought you the entertaining and educational magic that adds another dimension to our Passover seders now give us the opportunity to add more Hanukkah magic and delight, meant to excite our families about Jewish celebration. These magic tricks are meant to enhance your family’s celebration and lead to more questions and more learning about the practices of Jews in America today.

By Rabbi Danny Zemel Temple Michah, Washington, DC
Hanukkah is a holiday filled with awe and mystery. We see it in the faces of children as they are told the story of the miracle of the little jar of oil that miraculously burned for eight days. As adults, we remember our own amazement at hearing the wonders that God wrought when told the Hanukkah story. One needs only to look at the beauty of the burning Hanukkiah to know there is magic in those lights. Now with the Hanukkah-dabra magic kit, you can add your own contemporary magical “flare” to the candles as they glow and the beautiful holiday experience is dramatically renewed.

The magic tricks in the Hanukkah-dabra kit were assembled by the Mt. Zion Temple Youth Group (St. Paul, MN) under the supervision of Rabbi Adam Spilker.


The New Edition

The new edition of Hanukkah-dabra includes eight amazing magic tricks that also relate to the story of Hanukkah. Each magic trick is totally different
from the original deluxe magic set. See the descriptions below. Another big difference is the “New Edition” costs less than the “Deluxe Edition.” One
magic set is not better than the other, but the New Edition just cost us less to produce, so we’re passing the savings on to you!

Both of our Hanukkah-dabra magic sets make Hanukkah fun for all ages, but we recommend the “magician” be over the age of 10 and able to read and understand instructions. Younger children can do some of the tricks in either set, but they may need help from adults.

New Edition Cost: $29.95 + shipping and handling
Deluxe Edition Cost: $49.95 + shipping and handling

Oil Vey!
Have you ever wondered where the oil was found in the destroyed Temple? This traditional “3-card monte” magic trick tells you exactly where. A fan of three cards is shown. A spectator removes the middle card and it appears to change to an “oil” card. It’s very easy to perform and you’ll learn it in minutes.
Predict the colors of two dreidls before a spectator even makes a
choice! The magician writes a prediction of two colors on a piece of paper. The spectator makes a chain using dreidl domino cards. The two colors at the end of the chain match the prediction. The best part…you can repeat this trick! And the result is always different.
Wacky Wicks
Show the spectator three pieces of different length candle wicks (rope).After a few magic words and a little “Hanukkah-dabra,” all the ropes become the same length. It fools everyone. But a word of caution…you will need a little extra time to learn how to perform this powerful illusion. And it’s well worth the effort!
Temple Restorama
The window of the Temple is destroyed and restored instantly. Begin by having your friend draw a Hanukkah-like picture on a white card. Then, using a pencil, the magician penetrates the card and solid clear plastic “window” yet when the pencil is removed, there is a hole in the card BUT no hole in the window. Sounds impossible…but it’s very sneaky and easy to perform.
Hanukard Monte
You show your friends two cards -- one with a dreidl and the other with a menorah. One of the cards is placed behind your back. No matter how hard the spectator guesses, he or she cannot figure out which card is behind your back. You will learn it immediately and want to show everyone your new magical skills.
A spectator chooses a word off of the Menorah-Go-Round card. With the help of a Hanukkah candle and a little magic, the magician reveals the selected word. It’s a mystery but very easy to do.
Vanishing Candles
Actually, this should be called the “Appearing Candles” because you make the candles appear EVEN THOUGH you can make them disappear. Show the drawer box empty, say “Hanukkah-dabra” and instantly Hanukkah candles appear! If you want, close the drawer again and the candles disappear. And you don’t even need to wear long sleeves to perform this one.
Hanukkah Gelt-o-meter

Get more for your Hanukkah gelt using the amazing Gelt-o-Meter. A penny covered by a magic block changes to a dime. This is self-working and can be learned instantly!
