It's already Chanukah in Jerusalem!

Best wishes for a holiday that inspires re-dedication. May yours be filled with lots of latkes, chocolate coins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8HvhJ5Os6w), tasty Bukharan dishes (http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9900E7DB153EF937A15751C1A9619582 60), and not too much Chanukah guilt! ;)

A Blessed and Joyful Hanukkah to all of our FSU Members Celebrating!!

BTW...We *love* Latkes and have made them a part of our Holiday Get togethers/Suppers for Friends. I got an awesome recipe for them out of a Taste of Home magazine many years ago and they call for the addition of a Granny Smith Apple to the mix. The tang of the Apple really adds a nice zing to them. IIRC, it's one Granny Smith to four potatoes.

Just thought I'd mention that for those who might be interested in giving it a try. :)

Happy Hanukkah!

btw, this Christian has a dumb question. My neighbor has invited me for latkes and candle-lighting this week. As a guest, what should I do or bring? (I already know food and drink are out of the question; very kosher household) She has a dog. Should I bring something for the dog, too? :lol:

It's really not that difficult to bring food or alcohol.

Almost all hard liquor is kosher (but not anything derived from grapes, like cognac, unless it's certified kosher, and not tequila with a worm in it).

There is kosher wine; you might be able to find it at a good wine merchant or even some supermarkets. (Not all Jews who otherwise keep kosher limit themselves to wine that is kosher, but it's best to assume that your friends do.)

As far as food goes, lots of processed food is kosher. Check the packages to see if it has one of these symbols: http://www.jewishcooking.org/kosher-symbols.html. The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations symbol is the most common, I believe.

You could also bring a basket of fresh fruit.

Feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions.
