Porcelain Yiddish Fortune Cookies

This product is not available.


Exclusive to The Jewish Museum Shops!
Handcrafted by artist Aleksandra Pollner, these fortune cookies have timeless Yiddish sayings inside. Break them open to reveal a fortune written in both English and Yiddish. There are 24 different sayings in all - you never know which one you'll get! Each cookie comes in a natural cotton gift pouch, which is perfect for holding the fortune and cookie 'crumbs' after breaking. Made in Seattle, Washington.
Sample Fortunes:
When one must, one can. // Az me muz, ken men. Nerve succeeds! // Chutspeh gilt! If you can't go over, go under. // Az me ken nit ariber, gait men arunter. If fortune calls, offer him a seat. // Ven dos mazel kumt, shtel im a shtul.
