Get your Jewish Grand Rebbe Costume at Walmart

Thank you Saul for posting this on my wall.

You can check out the Grand Rebbe costume for yourself on the Walmart website, I just wonder who actually bought the thing. I also wonder how many frummies are going to buy it for purim. If that wasn’t enough Walmart also has the Kohen Gadol and Rochel Imeinu costumes.

    Did Rachel really have her own kever crocheted on her clothing?

    How… macabre

    Possibly the first recorded use of a memento mori?

      Oh man, you are right! If that costume was authentic, that would a) be extremely creepy, and b) mean that time travel would have to be involved somehow.

      At least the kohen gadol costume seems more reasonably authentic. I’ve got to give them props for that. Although it looks like they maybe got the inscription on the Tzitz a bit mixed up (well, maybe– from what I can see in the pic, it says “?shiny blur ???blur”, and I was expecting the ? before the ? there. But given the tiny blurriness of the pic, maybe I’m wrong).

        Oops, font failure, sorry. Not sure if it’s because I accidentally had my keyboard language set to Yiddish instead of Hebrew, or a character encoding error. Anyway, just imagine that my sentence up there said “from what I can see in the pic, it says qof shiny blur lamed he yod blur, and I was expecting the yod before the he.”

    I like the Kohen Gadol one, myself.

    If you go to the manufacturer’s site – dressupamerica.com – there are even more including my favorite, the Kohen Gadol

    If you go to the site, one customer gave it five stars and this review:

    Very good authentic costume. 01/09/2013

    My father-in-law was the last Grand Rebbe of a Malchus Beis Chern. His holy ancestor R’ Shmuel Chern was a talmud of the Bal Shem HaKudish, who almost become the Beshts successor if not for the Bredichiver Magids better beard. Anyway, my FIL was the 6th generation of Chern Rebbes, his father had been the last Rebbe in Chern, Poland, where he had millions of chassidim and a court that anyone today, including Belz, would be envious of. So when my Father-in-law died, naturally the chassidim began looking towards me to fill my wife’s holy ancestors shoes, I am a Stamford trained anesthesiologist, my wife is a college graduate (“Amcerica” and all) so the chasidim next turned to my youngest son Chaim. We agreed to allowe him to become the Rebbe. He is now know as the “Yenuka from Chern”. The only issue we had was finding the right Rebbishe bigadim for him, none of the stores in Williamsburg were selling these Rebbishe bigadim for kids, we narueally we turned to WalMart for help and we purchased this fine product.

    The price was great, and the quality even better. My son did however, drop some Gefilte Fish he was throwing pieces of into a bleacher full of people, and the stain has been difficult to remove.

    All in all, this is a great product and I highly recommend for any young Rebbes.

    @OfftheDwannaB – funny. My laugh for the day.

    There’s also a Dovid Hamelech (standard Disney prince coat and those funky knickers but with dovid hamelch embroidery! very educational), a Rivka Imeinu (camels, ya know!), and adult version of the Grand Rebbe and a Hatzoloh guy costume available.
