The past few months have been challenging for Israelis and Jews alike. As Hannukah approaches, a lot of my peers have been asking about buying Judaica, supporting Israeli businesses and overall just feeling connected to their Judaism. I put together a list of some of my favorite Israeli brands and designers you can buy great fashion items from for the holiday season.
The guide includes jewelry picks, sunglasses, clothing, bags and accessories and prints. Check out my picks below and start shopping. Happy Hannukah!
If you know me, you know I love Marock and the beautiful creator Charlene. She is a french designer who curates the most beautiful shop on Sheinkin in Tel Aviv. She also makes beautiful jewelry with Chai, Jewish Star, evil eye and hand charms. Beautiful gifts for the holiday season!
Jewish Star Necklace:
Mango Tree is a staple on the streets of Tel Aviv. There are multiple locations throughout the city and they are also available online. If you are looking for a simple Hebrew name necklace, chai, chamsah or Jewish star necklace for prices starting at $35 this is a great bet.
This beautiful fine jewelry store is a hotspot in Tel Aviv. If you are looking to invest in a beautiful piece of jewelry this Hannukah, this a great pick. Malka is the Hebrew word for queen and you'll certainly feel royal shopping here.
This Israeli brand makes beautiful bags and accessories and focuses on their commitment to ethical and sustainable fashion. Their new vegan line uses recycled materials to make unique accessories. I've been eyeing a red bag all season and this might be the perfect one below!

Ollu is on a mission to make eyewear more sustainable. This brand has been a favorite of mine since I discovered it last year and I'm building up my sunglasses collection little by little with their beautiful frames.

This fabulous sister founded brand makes versatile jumpsuits that people can truly live in and fabulous bags. This is the perfect holiday gift for a few reasons--everyone on your list will love it AND they are doing good with your support.
My pick for a fun and colorful bag:
This is one of my all-time favorite brands. De-Rococo mixes NYC luxury with Tel Aviv comfort. If you love Anine Bing like me, De-Rococo always has similar elevated basics. I love their denim, t-shirts and everything in between. You could get your whole wardrobe there and you'd have everything you ever needed.
If you are looking for a way to connect to Israel this holiday season, I would recommend checking out the beautiful work of Orli Levitt. She has amazing and unique prints from all over Tel Aviv and other cities around the world.
Tel Avivian started as an instagram account profiling all the best cultural spots in Tel Aviv. Think food, shopping, art etc They also have a beautiful portfolio of prints from every spot in Tel Aviv capturing all its beauty. This is a great gift for your loved ones this holiday season.
It's been a difficult few months for the Israeli and Jewish community. A lot of my followers have reached out asking for ways to showcase their Judaism and support Israeli businesses. Hannukah is the festival of light. It's been a dark time and this holiday season we all need a little more light, I hope these beautiful gifts from Israeli and Jewish businesses provide some joy. Some of these brands like Ollu and B.O.D are actually donating to displaced families that have been affected by the horrors of October 7th. You can read more about it on their respective websites. Happy Holidays to all and praying for peace and better days ahead.
