The last time Hanukkah and Thanksgiving coincided was in 1888. It’s unlikely that there was a store as cool as Modern Tribe back then to help commemorate the convergence of the two heavyweight holidays.
Atlanta-based Modern Tribe is the online Jewish gift shop for those in the know, and it’s live and local for a limited time with a “”pop-up”” location in Inman Park. Get to know Modern Tribe’s phenomenally talented owner Jennie Rivlin Roberts, and then be a mensch and head down to the pop-up before it goes poof at year’s end.
