Hannukah, the Festival of Lights, celebrates the victory of the Maccabees against the ancient Greeks, and the rededication of the Jerusalem Temple. It also honors the miracle of the Jews’ small flask of oil, which lasted eight days. More generally, Hannukah has come to represent cultural freedom. In fact, the Hebrew word “Hannukah” comes from the same root as the word for education, “chinuch.”
Our holiday menu is as healthful as it is traditional, with lightened Sweet Potato Latkes topped with Golden Cinnamon Applesauce, and a slimmed-down rice pudding that don’t sacrifice an ounce of taste.
