Gift-giving tips for non-Jews with Jewish loved ones

Before you give your loved one a pair of shoes, a coat or a sweater, make sure it doesn't contain wool and linen. Garments made with these two materials (shatnez) are prohibited in Jewish law, so your loved one won't be able to wear them as-is.

Testing for shatnez will let you know if the garment is suitable to wear, and performing shatnez collar replacements will make a prohibited garment acceptable (or kosher). Bring the garment you want to give your loved one to Lakewood Cleaners in Lakewood, NJ today to get it tested.
