Jewish Band Haim Sells Hanukkah Shirt to Support Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue
The pop rock band Haim is selling a Hanukkah-inspired shirt and proceeds of all sales will be donated to the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, where 11 people were killed last month in a shooting that took place during Shabbat services.
The band — comprised of Jewish sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim — announced the sale on its Instagram page late last week, along with other holiday merchandise. The shirt is designed with a Star of David and various words associated with Hanukkah, including “Dreidel,” “Candle,” “Maccabees,” “Eight Days,” “Latkes,” “Lights,” and “Presents.” The shirt also says, “Happy Haimukkah.”
Last year, the band celebrated the first night of Hanukkah with a new original song called “Haimukkah.”
