    Tim: I need to light the menorah in five minutes anyway.

    Steph: I'll light your Mom on fire.

    Babs: That's like the fourth time you've said that. At this point, you're basically promising to set Tim's Mom on fire.

    Tim: Yeah, don't make that promise if you're not willing to follow through.

    Steph: Fine, bring me your Mother and a box of matches then.

    OK, if you're going to trick me into watching a holiday baking competition, making Maya Rudolph and Joanna Newsom's husband (Andy Samberg) host it is a good way to trick me into it. They're my faves and they're BOTH JEWS. And I immediately got excited that they were starting with a Hanukkah challenge and then immediately had my hopes dashed bc it's just "make eight. things." There is an iconic Ashkenazi Hanukkah pastry, the sufganiyah, which is literally just a jelly donut, something that every American is familiar with. And there are loads of less well known in the US Hanukkah desserts out there like bimuelos which are also fucking delicious. Hell, could literally just make the challenge "fried food" and that would be better. I am going to die mad about this.

    #Seriously I had to turn off the show cause all these goyim were like 'I'm making 8 Christmas Trees' #I wouldn't have been so offended if it Andrew and Maya were both members of the tribe #Like if you don't want to even Google chanukah than just don't include it. That's fine. I don't even care. #I'm going to go watch the Derry Girls Bake Off Christmas special again instead #Andy Samberg#maya rudolph#Baking #clearing out the drafts #post o' mine #war on christmas #Hanukah#Hanukkah#Jumblr

    O que é correto: Hanukkah ou Chanukah?

    O que é correto: Hanukkah ou Chanukah?

    O Festival das Luzes Judaico é uma celebração de oito dias que comemora a rededicação do Segundo Templo de Jerusalém . É um dos feriados mais populares do judaísmo e é marcado pela iluminação da menorá. Para muitos falantes de inglês, o festival também é conhecido pela confusão sobre a grafia de seu nome: é Hanukkah ou Chanucá ? A resposta é que ambos são considerados corretos,…

    On Miracles of Oil and Jewish Survival

    Looking at the chanukiah tonight after lighting for this final night of Chanukah, watching the flames flicker in their cups, and thinking vague, almost-but-not-quite-poetic thoughts about Chanukah, miracles of oil, and Jewish survival through the ages.

    There’s a metaphor in there, somewhere. And I can’t quite put it into the words I want, but...

    One tiny flask of oil, which should have burned out in one day... yet, eight days later, was still burning against all reason.

    One tiny nation, which should have been wiped out long since... yet, thousands of years later, is still holding fast against all reason.

    When I think about it, logic dictates that I should not exist. One of the innumerable attempts throughout history to eradicate my people, by genocide or assimilation or some combination thereof, should have been successful. Whatever the case, we most definitely shouldn’t still be around and celebrating Chanukah. Even if we did manage to survive all the physical threats, at some point over the past couple thousand years — a minority, in exile, facing persecution after persecution — we must surely have lost our communal identity, assimilated beyond recognition. Ceased to be Jews, ceased to be a people, ceased to be the Jewish people.

    Except, we didn’t. And it’s decades, centuries, millennia later, and we’re still alive, still Jews, still here to commemorate those past attempts. To retell our stories. To kindle our flames. To... eat fried foods and do some light gambling. Um. Anyway.

    B’chol dor vador omdim aleinu l’chaloteinu; in every generation they stand against us to destroy us. And despite that, here we are now and still, after so much, after so many generations. Gathering together (or gathering apart, in pandemic times), lighting our oil (or lighting candles, for the modern folks) — and still, still, still, burning on against all the odds.

    Call it a miracle. Call it the stubbornness of a stiff-necked people. But here we are.

    Take that, Antiochus. (And take that, Pharaoh, and Haman, and the Crusaders, and Hitler, and and and...)

    Am yisrael chai. To my tiny handful of Jewish followers, chag sameach.

    ’tis the season to be mourning and hiding from pogroms

    I wonder, sometimes, how many non-Jews have ever heard of Nittel Nacht (the Yiddish name for Christmas Eve: traditionally a day of mourning and avoiding Torah study), or are aware of its history.

    Generally speaking, people understand if I feel left out or excluded from something, I think. They somewhat get why I object to being pressured to participate in Christianity-centric celebrations or other activities I don’t want to be part of. I can explain how Christian hegemony and the pervasiveness of all things Christmas at this time of year is aggravating... and while of course not everyone gets it, and some take offense, many do understand and sympathize to one extent or another. Whether or not they feel similarly, on some level my discomfort/annoyance makes sense. Maybe it’s even relatable.

    And yes, sure, I do get irritated sometimes. Absolutely. Anyone who’s put up with my annual kvetching about so-called “holiday parties” knows it.

    But it’s not just that I don’t want to play Secret Santa, or that I’m tired of being asked about my holiday plans, or that I’d like to hear some different music once in a while. I mean, yes, it’s all of that... but there’s another, heavier, more historical aspect that I feel is often missing or missed. And I never know quite how to get that other dimension across when I have this conversation.

    How do I explain I wish you a merry Christmas... fyi this is also a time of intergenerational fear and mourning for me.

    How do I explain Your tree is really beautiful... incidentally the fact that I don’t have to huddle at home tonight with the lights out and pray that the mobs will pass me by this time is a freedom I cannot fully take for granted.

    How do I explain I hope that you have a wonderful, joyous celebration with your family... btw I don’t know how many of my ancestors were murdered on and/or as a direct result of this holiday but the number is undoubtedly much, much too high.

    Mostly, I don’t bother bringing this up or trying to explain it. Partly because it’s difficult and stressful to find the right words and I never know how it will be received, partly because it isn’t usually at the forefront of my mind, partly because I do genuinely want my Christmas-celebrating friends and acquaintances to have a great time, a lovely celebration, and a happy holiday. I don’t need to rain on their festive cheer by making it about me, my personal hangups, my people’s trauma and persecution.

    So I keep it to myself, most of the time... and yet. It’s still there, hovering in the background of all the sighs and sarcastic comments and wry smiles.

    I don’t even observe Nittel Nacht, personally. Never have. But I find myself thinking about its origins a lot around this time. And sometimes I can’t help but wonder who else, outside of the Jewish community, connects the dots. Or if they see the dots at all.

    have you heard about "when the angels left the old country"? it's a jewish ya fantasy novel set in the early 1900s that's coming out in fall of 2022. i think you'd really like it!!!

    No, I had not heard of it! Having just looked up the summary, however, it does sound very intriguing. Always happy for there to be some more Jewish fantasy fiction in the world.

    Thank you for the recommendation!

    Happy holidays to all who celebrate! Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom, a Gut Shabbes, a pleasant and peaceful day of rest! Good Shabbos!

    ...Or, y’know, if anyone happens to be celebrating some other holiday tomorrow, I do hope you have a good one too. ;)

    (Also: If you do not celebrate any holiday tomorrow, you are valid and you are not alone. Have a good weekend. Hang in there.)

    The best/worst part of being Jewish in a non-Jewish society is experiencing the annual unavoidable existential calendrical reminder of the inexorable passage of time twice per year, rather than only once.

    I just got through Rosh Hashanah a few months ago, it’s not even Tu B’Shvat yet, and now you’re telling me it’s going to be a new year again??

    From Chanukah. You can absolutely make latkes if you're single - this is made with two small potatoes, half an onion and half an egg (the other half went into waffles, I think). Serious Eats had a few great suggestions - there's no need to peel the potatoes, just wash them. Also, after you wring out the liquid from the potatoes, let that water settle for about five minutes. Pour away the brown liquid on top and toss the white potato starch back into the latke mix. It is a great binder. Because I never eat it except when I'm making latkes, I buy applesauce in individual cups.

    FINALLY got around to my (very late) last night of Chanukah! I’ve been working and on the road so I had to wait to fully light this thing up once I was home and settled.

    I certain other non-Jewish holiday gets like two months around this time of year so I can share my nearly-a-month-late eighth night! I hope everyone had a wonderful time!

    Also, I finally got to use my cookie cutters my sister got me:

    My first time making royal icing! Also my first time writing Hebrew letters and it was in icing lol. Sounds about right for me.

    Chag Sameach!

    Cross Stitch Update: December 27th 2021

    This pattern is not mine. I purchased it from SewPerfectlyDesignedon Etsy.

    And that, folks, is where I'm going to leave this one. Stitching all eight flames and attaching velcro is not going to be particularly scintillating so I'll do that in my free time and move on to my next project for y'all to enjoy.

    Brace yourselves, it's gonna be a big one...
