The Jewish celebration of Hanukkah will begin this Sunday, December 2nd, and many Jewish families will begin to prepare special Hanukkah treats!
During this time, Jews remember a miracle that happened many years ago. When Jews long ago had run out of oil to light the eternal flame, a holy symbol that God is always present, they trusted in God and he kept the flame burning until they could find more oil. Because of this special miracle – learn more here – many Jews prepare fried foods that use oil, like potato pancakes.
Our friends at The Nosher created a helpful video so you can make the perfect potato latkes and celebrate with family and friends!
