Hanukkah Lights at Work

Hanukkah Lights at Work

Hanukkah Lights at Work

Every night of Hanukkah, at 5 p.m., we light candles, sing Maoz Tsur, and eat donuts in the dairy cafeteria at work. The donuts (sufganiyot) are an Israeli Hanukkah custom, supposedly an adaptation of deep-fried Greek pastries. A couple times a week we also get cold potato latkes because, as everyone knows, it’s hard to get enough calories during Hanukkah. 🙂

I’m not very fond of sufganiyot (well, maybe only the dulce con leche ones!), but here are some recipes and videos if you want to try them.
