A Chanukah Medley


It’s Chanukah at Jew in the City. Here are some past Chanukah posts you can enjoy over some latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly donuts).

Are you making latkes from scratch this year? Homemade latkes take quite a bit of effort, but are definitely worth it in the end. Find out what else in life is worth some extra effort.

Also learn how a Droid cell phone game can teach us a deeper meaning about the miracle of Chanukah.

And finally, everyone enjoys gold-covered chocolate Chanukah gelt, but how about people that eat real gold? What’s the Jewish take on that?

Happy Chanukah!

    Though they kept their Jewish blood a secret, some clues still managed to leak out.
