Eleven Hundred Candles Light up the Community for Purim

Every year IKAR, an innovative Jewish community in the heart of Los Angeles, curates a thoughtful gift package for the Jewish holiday of Purim. This year, IKAR commissioned Would Works to produce a unique wooden "traveling shabbat candle" for their gift bag.  These small portable candles are perfect for outdoor shabbat dinners or for ceremonies on the go.

This was the largest unit order we have done to date and it was a great success! 

According to Claire Wazana Meredith, the Membership & Community Engagement Manager at IKAR:

We were thrilled to be able to partner with Would Works and create a beautiful and meaningful product for our Mishloah Manot. The theme for our box brought together two major themes of Purim:
Giving gifts of sweetness and acts of justice. Would Works was a dream to work with and we were honored to be able to support their work.

Many thanks to IKAR for the opportunity to spread light and spread the word about Would Works!
