I’m not Jewish, which is why I’m coming here for advice. My grandmother died a few months ago, pretty suddenly, and it hit my family hard. She was Catholic, and about half of our family is Catholic/Agnostic and the other half is Jewish. The Catholic/Agnostic side celebrates Christmas while the Jewish side celebrates Hanukkah. I wanted to get my family symbolic gifts with her picture for the holidays as a way of reminding them that, while she might not physically be here to celebrate, she’s there in spirit. For the Catholic side, I think that a Christmas tree ornament with her picture is a good option, but I’m struggling with the Jewish side. Is there a tree ornament equivalent in Judaism? I want to get them something but I’d like it to be appropriate for their holiday. Please help!!!
