I thought my brother-in-law was just poking fun of my love for Elf On a Shelf when I received a text message from him this afternoon. Well, he probably was, but he sent me a picture of The Mensch on a Bench!  I googled it, and they sell it on Amazon!

Now we have 4 years of Elf On a Shelf pictures to give you inspiration and if anyone wants to send me pictures of their Mensch on a Bench I'll gladly post them too!

From Amazon Mensch on a Bench is designed to Add More Funukkah to Hanukkah! The:the Mensch on a Bench is a NEW Hanukkah Tradition meant to bring families together

Mensch on a Bench was created by a Jewish father who wanted to teach his sons about the Jewish holiday while adding new traditions to the family.

The Mensch on the Bench is available as a book and a doll. The book tells the 8 rules of having a Mensch, which are meant to drive more Jewish family traditions and re-enforce the values we want to hand down to our children

Hanukkah begins at sundown on Christmas Eve this year, December 24th!
