Chanukah Giveaway #2: A Great Miracle Happened There

Gabrielle Mizrachi-Mallin designs three-dimensional Judaic art creations, inspired by Jewish rituals, symbols and traditions.

I got to meet Gabrielle recently at the Bar Mitzvah of the son of good friends in Kansas City. In one of those “it’s a small world” moments, it turns out Gabrielle is my friends’ cousin. And she just so happens to be an avid reader of Kosher on a Budget.

As we talked over lunch about her art, Gabrielle generously offered to give away a matted and signed print of her piece, A Great Miracle Happened There. I know it would be perfect for Chanukkah! This 12″x12″ print retails for $45. There will be one winner.

You can read more about the symbolism of A Great Miracle Happened There on Gabrielle’s site, Ashra Design.

Originally from Lakewood, New Jersey, Gabrielle moved to South Florida as a child with her parents and five siblings. She attended Florida State University and earned her BFA in Studio Art and Design. A wife and mother, Gabrielle enjoys discovering ways to create meaningful art with her own artistic voice.

If you would like to win this beautiful print, please leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite Chanukah food.

This giveaway will be open until Wednesday night, December 14. The winner will be selected randomly and notified on Thursday, December 15. Only one entry per person, please.

I was not compensated in any way to run this giveaway. I am truly just happy to share Gabrielle’ unique talents with my readers.


  1. My grandpa’s vegetarian tamales recipe and homemade sufganiot with either pastry cream or chocolate inside.

  2. Latkes with sour cream. My hubby eats them with honey though.

  3. This might sound weird, but my favorite Hanukkah food is brisket! I make brisket for all the holidays.

  4. Latkes!

  5. LATKES with sour cream AND apple sauce.

  6. Latkes however only potatos hand-grated plus also a nive amount of oinion…. and on the side, both: of course real sour cream, but alas I can’t indulge in thst type of hjgh cholesterol- causing fat…. but upon discovering plain greek yogurt, I have almost reached bliss…. the second good is a yummy apple sauce, served very cold… I enjoy yhe contrast of hot crunchy on the outside but tender on the inside latke, with COLD greek plain yogurt and COLD apple sauce! Yum! 🙂

  7. This sounds a little outrageous, but that’s how we like to do it – it’s the ultimate chanuka sandwich (and something of a ritual). Toasted rye bread, thin layer of dijon mustard, fresh brisket, a hot-from-the-frier latke, gravy and then top the sandwich with another piece of toasted rye.
