Morri and Marina Chowalki, an interfaith couple, pitched the Hanukkah Tree Topper to the Sharks so they could help them “bring cultures together during the holidays.”
There are around one million Jewish/Christian families in the USA who celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah to one degree or another, and the Hanukkah Tree Topper brings these families some Mazel Tov to the Merry Christmas tree.
"My goal was: how do I elevate my career, my reputation, myself and find a way to work with one of these guys?" (Morri has worked for Daymond for many years)

The couple launched their business in 2009 and they’ve sold “thousands” world-wide since. The Hanukkah Tree Topper is currently the number one selling tree top ornament on Amazon. Assuming the Sharks go for the whole shmeer, they’ll be looking for a “strategic partnership” to get them into the big box stores.
