Chutzpah

A crash course in Judaism for the uninitiated

 This tongue-in-cheek kit helps non-Jews learn enough about Jewish culture to be able to blend in at a Jewish event.  The rigid-construction packaging houses a kippah (with instructions on how to wear it), tattoo cover-up, a deck of flashcards on Jewish holidays and customs, and a small flask hidden in the box’s false bottom. The typography and text throughout the project is playful and sarcastic—reflecting the style of humor frequently found among Jewish families.
