Jewish holidays often have food associated with them, and Hanukkah is no exception. Hanukkah is known for latkes (hot and fragrant potato pancakes). In Israel, sufganiyot (jelly-filled doughnuts), are traditional. These treats, many of which are fried, are reminders of Hanukkah’s ancient miracle, in which the Jews who retook the Holy Temple found only enough consecrated lamp oil to last one day, but which burned for eight.
