Hi! One of my oldest an closest friends has been connecting with his Jewish heritage over the past decade that I’ve known him. It’s become very important to both his growth and identity.
I commiserate strongly as an American-born Asian. Asians have traditional gifts that we give for special occasions, and also gifts that are taboo. My friend has just gotten a new job, and I’d like to give him something as both a congratulations and just to show how much I value his friendship. Are there any traditional Jewish gifts to mark such an occasion?
