For the last few years, we’ve had a special addition to our Christmas season – celebrating Hanukkah with our good friends. That may seem strange, but it’s been such a blessing! As Christians, it’s humbling to get an authentic, up close look at some of the traditions and prayers Jesus would have participated in.
Our friends have been gracious enough to include us in their celebration and humor me in my attempts to make some of the traditional food. Latkes, of course, are a Hanukkah staple and these are just perfect – crisp on the outside and the lemon and thyme give them a bright, fresh taste.
