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
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
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!
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.

learn it in minutes.
the colors of two dreidls before a spectator even
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.
the spectator three pieces of different length candle
a few magic words and a little “Hanukkah-dabra,”

picture on a white card. Then, using a pencil, the
magician penetrates the card and solid clear plastic

there is a hole in the card BUT no hole in the window.

and easy to perform.
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.
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.
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
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!
There is a Choking hazard.
