In 1961 there was a memorably creative advertising poster campaign in the States which featured photographs of non-Jewish New Yorkers (Asian and Native American amongst others) enjoying Levy’s bread. The campaign slogan was, “You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s real Jewish Rye.”
The ad was a first for its time. It was witty, memorable and demonstrated diversity at a time when that was not being done.
And that is why, following on from my previous blog about Chanukah, I thought I would share with you this lovely Chanukah song from YouTube. It is heart warming, tender, moving and truthful. And, what’s more, you don’t have to be Jewish to appreciate it!
