Chanukkah, the eight-day Jewish holiday and festival of lights, started last night! We light a new candle on the menorah every evening after sundown. I will be making the traditional latkes (potato pancakes), like I do every year, and I plan to attempt making sufganiyot (jelly donuts!) from scratch. I'll let you know how that goes...
Who doesn't love a holiday that encourages you to eat donuts? Thank goodness for Chanukkah.
Bete'avon! (bon appetit in Hebrew)
