This year, Thanksgiving and the first night of Hanukkah will coincide, and what better way to celebrate than with a “Menurkey” — a menorah shaped like a turkey.

Asher Weintraub, who just turned 10, is the inventor of the Menurkey. He and his dad, Anthony Weintraub, join Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to talk about Asher’s business and “Thanksgivukah,” as the unusual overlapping holiday is being called.

Guest

  • Asher Weintraub, 10-year-old creator and designer of the Menurkey.
  • Anthony Weintraub, father of Asher.
