Haim, the rock group of three Jewish sisters with a cult-like following, just released new band merchandise for Hanukkah.

And a portion of sales for their “Happy Haimukkah” shirt will be donated to the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh - the site of a deadly mass shooting last month

The shirt, which went on sale Wednesday, features a colorful abstract Star of David with words scattered across the chest, including “dreidel,” “menorah,” “candles,” “latkes,” “Maccabees” and more. The band’s site did not say how much of the $35 would be donated to the synagogue.

And while the three sisters from Los Angeles – born to an Israeli father – are proud of their Jewish heritage, they also created some merchandise for their non-Jewish fans: A “Happy Haimidays” sweatshirt and sweatpants, featuring a cat and a dog in a Santa hat.

The band released its first album in 2013 and quickly soared to fame, performing on Saturday Night Live, opening for acts like Rihanna and Taylor Swift and appearing at festivals around the globe. They were nominated for best new artist at the 2015 Grammys and released their sophomore album, Something to Tell You, last year.
