What do you get a Jewish dad for Father’s Day? It’s always a conundrum. The cheesy answer has always been a tie, but hey, does anyone even wear ties anymore? Is it… socks? I guess you can never have enough socks, but there’s got to be a more original gift. Books? Somehow, books always seem to be the answer for dads, but again, is there something a bit… more exciting?
