Save the date for an Instagram Live you won’t want to miss! Mensch Box Co.’s creator, Becs Prager, leads us through a demo on Instagram Live as Becs walks us through their candle creativity with a moment to embrace the light of the candles for Hanukkah.
Becs Prager (they/them) is a non-binary Jewish digital designer and entrepreneur based in Austin, TX. They are the founder of Mensch Box Co. a personal-sized Shabbat box subscription that came about to help deliver ritual, tradition & joy during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Becs is passionate about creating experiences that build meaningful human connection and is dedicated to Jewish engagement, LGBTQIA+ visibility, and BIPOC liberation.
It’s no coincidence that Hanukkah, or chag urim, the “festival of lights” in Hebrew, falls every year on or near the winter solstice. Most faiths that originated in the ancient Near East, including Christianity, embedded within their religious calendars a practice to create warmth and light at the darkest time of the year. So tell the story, ask questions, eat, drink, and create light by welcoming others to your table.
