    2 days ago

    The lattke is the first dish that I am presenting in my Take Back December campaign, my small but sincere attempt to take a part of December back for Chanuka from another holiday that shall remain nameless. (Although I did name it in my post from yesterday.) The lattke, a...

    [Video below!]

    A few years back I wrote a story about cooking latkes for my wife’s then-congregation.  In the spirit of the holiday, here it is:

    LATKES WITHOUT END, AMEN
    December, 2004

    It’s 1991, and I am in the basement kitchen of Temple Mishkon Tephilo in Venice. I don’t know what it looks like...

    By Judy Zeidler

    These days, my family has spread out, but as always, we will all be coming together for Chanukah, because no one wants to miss the Chanukah reunion dinner, our favorite family get-together.

    It is a time to catch up on family gossip and enjoy each other's company, a time to sit...

    As if we didn't have enough on our plates, here's something new to argue about. Not that Jews don't have a fine history of conflict: Hillel vs. Shammai, Bundists vs. Zionists, Labor...

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    At Universal Studios, all the usual characters -- Spider-Man and the Rugrats -- were out in force on Sunday, Nov. 24. But they weren't just there for photo ops with children, instead they were lighting menorahs, spinning dreidels and eating the world's biggest latke at the...
