Hannukah celebrates the miracle of the menorah oil lasting eight days! It’s a widely celebrated festival in Israel, with loads of parties and communal candle-lighting, and lots of donuts (sufganiyot in Hebrew) and other fried goodies. Hug hanukkah sameach!
To learn more about Hanukkah and it’s traditions, check out our Hanukkah Survival Guide
You can find AMAZING and very different donuts across Tel Aviv, but to make the search easier, we went and tried out a few of the city’s trusted favorites to see if they have still got it for this year’s Hanukkah celebrations, click here to find out where are the best sufganiot in Tel Aviv.
We had to share this video because we think it’s great – thanks for sharing Gennady and Eretz Nehederet! It’s in Hebrew with Hebrew subtitles, but the Hebrew is pretty easy to follow – good luck!
Here are some of this year’s best events, to see full list of Hanukkah events click here.
