Lacey Latkes

These lacy, latkes are made during Hanukkah. Hanukkah or the Feast of Dedication is a Jewish festival. The Hebrew word Hanukkah means dedication. The Hanukkah holiday lasts eight days. It commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem. At this time we can re-dedicate our lives to God!
