A few years back, Jewish t-shirts were all the rage with bold slogans and vivid images. After a while, everyone and their granny was making them, so much so that quite frankly, I got a bit feed up with writing about yet another Jewish t-shirt being created via the Cafepress.com automated system.
I thought every possible idea had been done, but looking at Cafepress recently, I noticed that someone had taken the 1958 designed Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) symbol and connected it with the Jewish Star of David.
The CND symbol of course, is better known outside the UK as just a peace symbol and was designed by Brit Gerald Holtom, so next time you know someone is going off on a peace rally, buy them a t-shirt beforehand so they can express being Jewish and peaceful at the same time.
ShalomStar.com provides a range of t-shirts and other merchandise featuring the peace symbol and the Star of David in various styles and designs from the plain and simple through to ones with a message - You...Will...Be...Un-Assimiliated. Kvetching is futile.
Looking for a new yamulke for shabbos? Well, don't be afraid to don a baseball cap with the slogan This Is My Yamulke on it, who's going to argue?
There's certainly some thought that has gone into the ShalomStar.com and it's nice to see someone taking Jewish themes to come up with something anyone can wear.
